Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald takes page after page out of the Mitch McConnell playbook (Clean water edition)

A bipartisan bill that provides increased assistance for rural well remediation, and passed the Assembly unanimously (97-0), is being held up by Senate Marority Leader Scott Fitzgerald.  His dickin' around put the bill in even further jeopardy now that we're in pandemic mode.

Lame speculation, Riley.  The Assembly passed the bills 150 days ago.  How much time do GOP senators need to receive these assurances?  Have they even made any efforts to do so?

Retiring Guy wouldn't be surprised if the master of the manse Duey Stroebel also has his fingerprints on this score-settling and inhumanity.
