Southeastern Wisconsin Air Quality Still Problematic

Though Wisconsin officials are hoping that the air in southeastern Wisconsin will soon meet federal health standards and encourage easier industrial expansion, monitoring in 2007 suggests otherwise.

It's a regional problem, with smokestack pollution from as far south as Gary, IN and Chicago, IL drifting north to the greater Milwaukee area, and as far up the Lake Michigan coastline as Door County.

Two thoughts:

Are Wisconsin and local M-7 officials talking to their counterparts in Illinois and Indiana?

And what will be the impact of the expanded Oak Creek power plants on the region's job outlook and air quality?
