Walker Helps Kill Major Wind Farm In Brown County

Chalk up another jobs'-killing for Scott Walker - - this time what would have been the construction and operation of the state's second-largest wind turbine farm.

This surely negates Walker's PR blitz last week hailing 100 jobs moving across the Illinois state line to an industrial park near Kenosha.

Walker's moves to set aside the laboriously-negotiated rule on turbine siting worked out by the Public Service Commission while announcing much more restrictive rules and legislation creates what the private sector has long said it fears the most - - uncertainty.

From screwing around with alternative energy to legislating while stepping on the Open Meeting law, Walker's team really is The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight.
