Closing popular DNR magazine will cost twice the 'estimate'

Remember Team Walker's ham-handed surprise plan to extend its anti-science, information-scrubbing campaign by wiping out the DNR's popular, century-old magazine?

A magazine to which people rushed with new subscriptions when the found out Walker targeted its termination.

Turns out that the Walkerites said it would cost $370,000 to unwinded the magazine, but independent state analysts now put the shut-down cost at nearly $800,000.


Deliberate low-balling?

We'll know soon if the Legislature in a budgetary decision Wednesday buys the shutdown and the bad math.

Though we now know that the administration's inability to keep highway spending in line is not an isolated phenomenon.
