The DNR Becomes A Right-Wing Piggy Bank

This will drive a few more career DNR employees to early retirement:

A controversial $500,000 grant for promoting hunting and fishing was awarded Thursday by Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp despite tough questions from the public and a committee meeting earlier in the day.

The United Sportsmen of Wisconsin Foundation, a group with close ties to GOP politicians and other conservative organizations but a scant track record, was the only applicant for the award....
The vote came after the group took public testimony that was entirely opposed to it. 
Another example of people wasting their time offering input. Why bother when the decision is known in advance.
