MONROE - Democratic lawmakers representing Green County say they don't oppose large-scale farms, but they do have concerns, including where they are sited and how they are monitored. The Green County Board of Supervisors hosted Sen. Janis Ringhand of Evansville, who represents Senate District 15; Rep. Mark Spreitzer of Beloit, who represents Assembly District 45; and Rep. Sondy Pope of Mount Horeb, who represents Assembly District 80, at its meeting Tuesday for a discussion on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, or CAFOs. Each represents a portion of Green County.
