Legislation potential boon for local businesses

Algoma Lumber Company hosted United States Congressman Mike Gallagher earlier this month to petition for the passage of the Safe Routes Act of 2019. Gallagher is a sponsor of the legislation which aims to lift interstate travel restrictions for logging trucks. Owner Dan Kudick gave Gallagher a tour of the facility and says passage of the legislation could mean more clientele from neighboring states.


A companion bill is sponsored in the US Senate by Wisconsin's Ron Johnson. Currently, lumber trucks must travel state highways through metro areas like Green Bay taking them by schools and churches as well as other high traffic areas. The hassle limits Algoma Lumber Company's ability to find vendors who will sell to it.
