Just When You Thought Walker, GOP Couldn't Do Worse...

Am hearing that Walker and legislators are floating out some kind of Orwellian-titled 'Healthy Waters' bill backed by the WMC, Paper Council and others to give polluters another 20+ years to get phosphorous out of Wisconsin waters, strip much of the program's management from DNR scientists and hand it to Wisconsin Department of Administration partisan apparatchiks.

I've been saying for a while that the ultimate goal of these private-sector captives is the destruction of the Wisconsin Constitution's Public Trust doctrine, and this is clearly a step in that direction.

EPA approved a plan by the State to set phosphorus limits in surface water in 2012.I would think changes to the plan would result in lawsuits. Of course, that may be the goal for Michael Best and Friedrich who seem to be running the show at DNR and making money hand over fist.
