MEA Files Motion to Intervene After WMC Launches Legal Attack on the Authority of Local Governments to Regulate CAFOs

MEA filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit initiated by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce. The motion to intervene was filed on behalf of the Town of Eureka, a community in Polk County. At issue in the case is the authority of local governments to regulate CAFOs. Five towns enacted similar ordinances after an Iowa company announced plans to build a massive confinement facility in the area.
