WI PSC Affirms Anti-City Funding Double-Standard

Scott Walker's 2-1 anti-urban, rightwing Public Service Commission majority affirmed a ruling that said only city residents should pay for relocating utility lines if a street car line is built in Milwaukee - - while the state routinely spreads among all state taxpayers the cost of relocating utility lines when the so-called 'freeway' is being widened.

Another double-standard aimed at the city by Scott Walker's gang.

The PSC majority includes:
*  Ellen Nowak, former chief of staff to GOP Assembly Speaker John Gard, and also to Waukesha County Executive Dan Vrakas;

*   Phil Montgomery, a former Green Bay-area GOP State Representative. Montgomery was also a former Board Member to ALEC, the Koch brother-inspired state legislatures' advisory organization, and was once named an ALEC Legislator of the Year.
