"Wisconsin has filed a lawsuit against 18 companies over the manufacturing and marketing of toxic “forever chemicals,” alleging that these firms engaged in the “widespread contamination” of the state’s “property and natural resources.”

“Every Wisconsinite should be able to trust the water that comes out of their tap,” Gov. Tony Evers (D) said at a live-streamed press conference on Wednesday morning.

“But unfortunately, we know that for so many across our state, including folks right here on French Island, this isn’t always the case,” Evers said."
