No surprise that Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce and Milwaukee Business Journal are in bed together

Just days before Christmas, the U.S. EPA notified Gov. Scott Walker that it intends to classify large areas of East and Southeast Wisconsin as “nonattainment” with that agency’s 2015 National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ozone. Those standards, implemented by the Obama-era EPA, changed the definition of “clean air” from 75 parts-per-billion (ppb) of Ozone down to 70 ppb.

Not to mention raise the Foxconn red flag.

Wisconsin business groups* are sounding an alarm about a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plan to implement stricter air emissions standards the groups say would halt manufacturing-related expansions and new factories in southeast Wisconsin — but the impact is uncertain for Foxconn Technology Group’s massive complex.
