Lawmaker pushes for wind turbine lawsuit bill

GLENMORE– A state lawmaker wants to make it easier to sue owners of wind turbines. Republican Sen. Frank Lasee of De Pere says families in the Brown County town of Glenmore are suffering from adverse health effects and lower property values. But the way the laws are written now, it is difficult for families to sue the owners of the turbines.

Sen. Lasee says his new bill would help those who claim to suffer from physical or financial loss will be able to file a lawsuit. This bill would also allow people to sue any landowner with a turbine on their property.

The energy companies argue the wind turbines are safe and they are in full compliance with state and local laws.

A spokesperson for Duke Energy, the company that owns the turbines says the legislation is too new to comment on it yet.
