Mining Editorial Slams The Imperious Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, But...

The Journal Sentinel's editorial on the mining bill continues to leave the Bad River Chippewa band, and close-by iron ore mining's risks to their wild-rice-growing culture and treaty rights out of the discussion.

Both the Assembly and the Senate are doing the same thing, and need to be called out for it.

Fitzgerald deserved the tongue-lashing, but excluding the Native American people from the discussion is the bill's fatal flaw.

That just muddies the waters for the JS and Fitz. Indian treaties - huh?
