Water Compact Critic Lazich Not Invited To Another Committee She Can Criticize

State Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin), has been blasting the Great Lakes Compact from her position on the state's legislative study committee that is trying to draft a Compact ratification bill.

The Compact would establish rules and standards governing diversions from the Great Lakes - - rules and standards that Lazich and her allies on the pro-development, laissez-faire Waukesha County Chamber of Commerce do not like.

Now she's blasting a new state task force designed to try and break that logjam at the legislative study committee. Her complaint: she wasn't invited to the task force meeting.

Why wasn't Lazich invited?

Probably because the task force's goal is to work through the impasse Lazich is partially responsible for creating.

Some of that history is here.
