Once again, Wisconsin Republicans violate their most precious principle

One that obviously can't be taken seriously anymore.


State budget provision exempts Enbridge from Dane County insurance requirement.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 7/4/2015)

So much for local control.
The provision, which was added to the proposed state budget anonymously, would block a county measure to require Enbridge Energy to carry $25 million in pollution insurance before it can proceed with a planned pipeline capacity expansion.
