Editorial: Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald are contemptible liars

It was evident to any honest observer that the company’s promise to develop a manufacturing plant in southeastern Wisconsin that would ultimately employ as many as 13,000 workers represented an absurd and unobtainable promise by a foreign corporation that wanted to get on the good side of Donald Trump before the president started imposing tariffs.

Before Foxconn got access to millions of gallons of Lake Michigan water, Wisconsin quietly gave small village even more 

Can’t wait to hear the explaination from Scott Walker and former DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp on this one …

The help for Foxconn underscores how Gov. Scott Walker and fellow Republicans, since voters gave them control in 2010, have engineered the biggest shift in natural resource management in decades by easing regulations and promoting business-friendly policies. 

The changes have wide-ranging implications for the public — from fewer protections for lakes, streams and wetlands to less money spent on recycling programs, state parks and public land purchases.
