Iowa, Minnesota Outpacing Wisconsin In Conservation Efforts

The Journal Sentinel's outdoors writer has a nice wrap-up about the publicly-funded (read: tax support) conservation efforts newly-launched in Iowa and Minnesota, and notes the absence of similar programs in Wisconsin.

While our incoming small-government ideologues in Madison and their talk radio publicists are all yelling, "No new taxes," I wonder if any of them see the quality-of-life and tourism advantages being gained through public dollars - - dare I say, through investments - - by our neighboring states?
