Expensive to the Tune of $430,505.49 (as of June 30, 2013)

Far-reaching bill stirs conflict over who should — and can — monitor mining.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 10/25/2013)

The high cost of government.  Bob Bingen, representing the Aggegrate Producers of Wisconsin, said there is too much regulation.

“This is a very expensive system,” Bingen said. “It is having a chilling effect on business expansion in the state.”

In the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign's campaign finance database, Bob Bingen lists his employer as Michels Corp.

According to Wikipedia,   Michels Materials, a subsidiary of the corporation, is the largest aggregate producer in Wisconsin, operating more than 100 limestone quarries and gravel pits.
