Mining Hearing A Public Policy Low Water Mark


From our friends over at The Political Environment:


I have attended public meetings for roughly 40 years - - often as a journalist or public official - - and I have never seen a hearing as flagrantly disrespectful to citizens and policy-making, and to the entire notion of The Wisconsin Idea - - broadly defined as Wisconsin government existing to serve the people - - as the State Assembly committee session held at State Fair Park Wednesday on the fast-tracked mining bill.

That one lowered the bar to ground level.
