Walker Budget Will Increase Basement Flooding Risk

Scott Walker is proposing a cut in funding for sewer improvements in the very cities like Milwaukee where geography increases flood risks but local governments, with their hands tied by new Walker-mandated fiscal controls, will not be able to complete those very sewer improvements that will keep sewage out of basements and waerways.

The Journal Sentinel points out the contradiction.

Will Walker and the legislature listen?

Probably not.
