In yet another example of how awful Gov. Scott Walker’s latest biennial budget is for the State of Wisconsin, a new report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes his most recent budget cuts funding to fight water pollution by 16%.
As worries grow about water pollution caused by runoff from streets, yards and farm fields, Gov. Scott Walker’s next budget calls for nearly 16% in spending cuts in programs that attack the problem.
Combined with how lax the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has been in regards to enforcement actions against polluters since Gov. Walker took office, this latest revelation shows that the foxes truly are guarding the henhouse when it comes to the protection of Wisconsin’s environment.
