Wisconsin Seeks Relief From Federal Clean Air Rules: Feds Want Even Tougher Enforcement

In the Bizarro World of clean air enforcement, Wisconsin officials sought relief from federal smog rules to help industry expand here...yet the feds, under the Bush/Cheney pro-growth, dirty air regime, announced that even more Wisconsin counties could fall under the smog-control rules.

Some of Wisconsin's dirty air drifts up from Chicago, so it's not entirely a Wisconsin problem.

Still, you have to wonder: did Wisconsin officials jump the gun seeking federal relief from clean air rules?
