Assembly panel scales back lead pipe replacement program

BWL lead water lines

Legislators have scaled back a bill that would create grants and loans to help people replace lead water pipes. The Assembly committee amended the bill to cap grants at 50 percent of the replacement cost and make loans unforgivable. Since the Senate’s version approved differs, the two houses will have to reconcile. > WISC Madison
