Walker's ALEC-Linked PSC Chair Pitches Private Water Services Role

One of Scott Walker's first appointments was Phil Montgomery - - former GOP legislator, Koch interests' donation beneficiary, and ALEC big-wig - - to the chairmanship of the Public Service Commission.

From which Montgomery told a group of utility and other private sector officials last week that cooperation, regionalism and more private-sector funding and influence is the route to future Wisconsin water utility operation and management. 

Montgomery - - more on his prior ALEC work - - said his talk was an "everything on the table" approach.

I put his remarks in the category of a trial balloon - - Walkerite code echoing their talk about the 'tools' and 'certainty.' When you hear it, batten down the hatches.
