WIGOP hypocrisy in action: 2015 Republican Party of Wisconsin resolutions (eminent domain abuse)

Greasing oil’s path.   As environmental concerns halted pipelines elsewhere, Wisconsin government leaders quietly made it easier to condemn private property for a potential Canadian oil line expansion (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,. 11/9/2017)
In 2015, Enbridge persuaded Wisconsin Republicans, who have long expressed vigorous support for private property rights, to change the state’s eminent domain law. The change makes it easier for the company to turn to the government to force property owners to allow construction crews to bury new pipes across their land.  [emphasis added]
