Glenn Grothman: protecting kids from lead paint is okay so long as it doesn't cost us anything.

Hi everyone,

I think something must've happened to Glenn when he got into the Senate. Maybe lead in his childhood home finally caught up with him? If only they'd had lead abatement programs to protect kids in those days...

News: $6.7 million will go to decreasing lead paint

“Too many children have already been harmed by lead paint or other hazards and this money is crucial to allowing us to help make our homes safer,” Doyle said in a statement.

However, Republicans are skeptical of the measure due to the increase in federal spending.

Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend, member of the Senate Committee on Housing, expressed his concern on the government’s recent spending on various programs in the state.

“The federal government is so far in debt they have no businesses spending more money on anything, but if they’re doling out money… we might as well get our fair share,” Grothman said.

I guess ...

If we have to.
