A proposal initiated by La Crosse economic development professionals will be heard at a public hearing of the Colleges and Universities Committee today. Assembly Bill 431 introduced by Representative Steve Doyle of Onalaska would expand the use of grants to technical college district boards under the Workforce Advancement Training Grant Program.

Jim Bloedorn says he's just listening to his constituents. The La Crosse city councilman says unfavorable phone calls explain his 'no' vote on funding a study for moving interstate exit 3
Bloedorn is the only council member to vote against putting city money towards a fifty thousand dollar study on the feasibility of shifting exit 3 to the east. Proponents think the shift will boost economic development on the northside.
Another big conservation easement has led to a milestone for a local group. The Mississippi Valley Conservancy worked with former congressional Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert to put his Crawford County farm into a permanent conservation easement. That four hundred acres means the MVC has gone over 14 thousand acres that have been conserved in a nine county region. Pretty big deal, says MVC director, Tim Jacobson
The Hastert farm is about five miles north of Prairie du Chien. It's a working farm and the Hasterts will continue to own it.
