Does GOP Prefer No Mining Bill To The Assembly's Suicide Pact?

Some people think so, but I suspect the Assembly/Fitzgeralds would swallow a compromise bill that retains the citizen hearing provision now in the permitting law if the approximate $2-per-ton reclamation fee on the mining company is lowered or waived.

After all, even Walker, who has no use for citizen involvement, had said he didn't think keeping the hearing was a deal-breaker.

Maybe they can schedule the hearing after the permit is approved, or have it limited to an hour, or only open to people with approved ID?

Care to watch how Walker/Fitzgerald allies comport themselves with regard to some of the Assembly bill's critics/skeptics, and see how your tax dollars for these legislators' salaries and expenses are being spent? Videos, here.
