Walker Eliminates Recycling Subsidy

JS Online Excerpt:
Gov. Scott Walker's two-year budget would take the unprecedented step of eliminating a state requirement that communities operate recycling programs.

Walker's budget proposal would also eliminate all state subsidies paid to local units of government to pay for recycling, and instead use those proceeds to finance a state economic development fund.

Local communities could still operate recycling programs, under Walker's plan. But they would have to operate the programs without a state subsidy at a time when Walker is proposing sharp cuts in state aid to localities.
