Wisconsin farmers are hoping state lawmakers act on certain legislation soon.

State Farm Bureau Government Relations Director Jason Mugnaini tells Brownfield state legislation that would help haulers of milk and other agricultural liquid products by increasing truck weight limits has been gaining support. “We need to make sure that we can clarify some of these things so we can move products like liquid whey at a weight that is commensurate with production agriculture, and the configuration is 96-thousand pounds on six axles.”

Mugnaini says Wisconsin legislators are also tackling another issue of national interest.
