Walker signs $7 million cut to popular energy conservation program

As with his opposition to wind and solar power, reducing fossil fuel use through conservation is not what his corporate funding enablers want, as I noted earlier:
It's important to understand that Wisconsin Republicans and their big-money backers have a detailed and long-range strategy to hold power here.
It began in 2007 when Walker, a senior Koch brothers-founded Americans for Prosperity official (and about a dozen others as yet-unnamed in part because local media will not lift a finger to flesh out the story already broken by met "along the shores of Lake Michigan" to plan the political capture of Wisconsin for conservative interests.
It is hardly a coincidence that Walker has since been elevated to Wisconsin Governor, has been saved from a recall election defeat as well as John Doe prosecutorial investigations by tens of millions of dollars in conservative donations, and is being pushed forward in the pre-2016 presidential politicking by that same combination of right-wing organizations and their funding.

I don't get it. Wisconsin's environment should be one issue that rural Republicans should understand and not vote their knee-jerk reactions. When a stream running through their property dries up or becomes full of manure or sand, water source becomes contaminated with nitrates, reduced wildlife populations due to clear-cutting... I can't believe they would ascribe those things to Democrats.
