Superior Telegram Excerpt:
But Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce Environmental Policy Director Scott Manley says unless they go with the Republican-backed Assembly bill, this new committee is wasting its time.
“Any effort to water that bill down could scuttle that entire project. So from our perspective, it’s premature at this time to be talking about any legislation other than Assembly Bill 426.”
It's actually worse than just a handful of partisan legislators rigidly adhering to a one-party Republican-only bill. Last week, the WMC issued a statement ordering Republicans not to even consider discussing mining legislation with Democrats and environmentalists until after the November election.
In the video below, watch Jeff Fitzgerald bow to the WMC line by claiming attempts at creating jobs should wait until after the campaign season.
To these self-important arrogant shills, creating jobs is a seasonal event. I'm sure unemployed workers completely understand.
Democurmudgeon - Fitzgerald Brothers say now is not the time to create jobs! Really?
