New State Wetland Regulatory Reform Bill Signed by Governor Walker

March 28, 2018 - Governor Walker has signed into law Amendment 3 to Assembly Bill 547 now known as WIsconsin Act 183. This new law creates additional exemptions for artificial wetlands and certain nonfederal wetlands. There are also components of Act 183 that modify some requirements for wetland boundary delineations and DNR confirmations; creates wetland mitigation-related grant programs; and allows DNR to assume authority over the federal wetland program if the U.S. EPA agrees to delegate such authority to the State.
