Great piece by Lee Bergquist.
Note that while industry claims the bill it helped the GOP-led Assembly write protects the environment, a non-partisan State Legislative body says otherwise:
As environmentalists see it, an analysis by the nonpartisan Legislative Council, the research arm of the Legislature, cites numerous examples where safeguards would be rolled back by this year's mining bill.
But Scott Manley, a lobbyist with Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, sees it differently.
"When you look at the totality of what is being proposed here, it is a very robust set of regulations that protect the environment," he said.So do you believe, Bucky: a trade association lobbyist, or the non-partisan Legislative body?
