The Wisconsin DNR may be getting just a little too secretive.  That's according to Jennifer Giegerich with the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters.  She's not pleased with the agency's push to exempt some so-called minor pollution projects from environmental analysis. 
 
Giegerich says limiting environmental analysis runs the risk of harming the environment and doing so out of the public eye.  But making those decisions in the open makes certain that all interested parties in a project "come to the same conclusion about what kind of industry or what kind of air pollution situation could be happening in a community."
 
 The DNR says their proposal will help streamline operations, moving faster and saving taxpayer money. The DNR board votes on the proposal next month.

City has homes for sale, mayor wants more

Written by

Nothing says success in La Crosse's housing rehab program than actually having a family move into one of the homes.   Happened last week.  Hopefully, it will happen again soon, says mayor Tim Kabat.  And it wouldn't be horrible to have more new homes for people to move into.  Although that's happening with more regularity, too.  Especially with partnerships the city has created with Coulee Cap, Habitat for Humanity, Western Technical College and private contractors.

 The city has a list of homes that are in various stages of completion that will be for sale to the income-qualified soon.  Four new homes are currently for sale.  The city also has seven vacant lots on the market.

 Typically, the city's program leverages federal grant money to purchase dilapidated homes, raze them and then build new.  Those homes are sold to those who meet certain income requirements. Under those requirements, a family of four could have a combined income of up to $56 thousand.

Comment

Legislation that would ban the sale of fetal body parts is now circulating in Madison.  Comes from state rep Andre Jacque who says the need for the legislation is obvious because, as he says, "the simple dignity of these children being killed through abortion is being violated."  Beyond the ban on sale, the proposal also comes with new gender identification and disposal requirements.  

Other legislation from Jacque would block federal funding for Planned Parenthood in the state which would cost the organization millions of dollars.  

Similar legislation from Jacque has been introduced in the past.  But this time with possibly more success after  controversial videos showing Planned Parenthood's medical services director eating lunch with actors pretending to be in the fetal tissue market.

Trump attacks Walker in Iowa

Written by

No presidential candidate is safe from the ire if the Donald.  Not even the one republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has referred to as a 'nice guy.'  Trump went double barrel on Wisconsin governor Scott Walker on Saturday, according to those covering Trump while he campaigns in Iowa.  At a campaign event, Trump said Wisconsin is a mess under Walker, referencing budget deficits, high levels of borrowing and crumbling infrastructure.  Trump also labeled the state's education and hospital systems, 'a disaster.'  The attack prompted in part by Trump trailing Walker in Iowa even while the Wisconsin governor comes up second to Trump in polling among republicans nationwide.
