Smoke and Mirrors
The longer the State Democratic Senators stay out the longer more truth of Scott's Walkers Budget REPAIR comes to light..... one provision.....
16.896 Sale or contractual operation of state-owned heating, cooling, and power plants. (1) Notwithstanding ss. 13.48 (14) (am) and 16.705 (1), the department may sell any state-owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state. Notwithstanding ss. 196.49 and 196.80, no approval or certification of the public service commission is necessary for a public utility to purchase, or contract for the operation of, such a plant, and any such purchase is considered to be in the public interest and to comply with the criteria for certification of a project under s. 196.49 (3) (b).
.... in essence this allows Walker. WITH NO BIDS, to sell State owned power plants at a price his flunkys set.!!!
......Walker first wants to bust the Unions, the opposition Democrats political base...then he wants the power to sell,,,,, WITH no oversight, Wisconsin assets!!!!!
WALKER'S SECOND LARGEST CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTOR WAS THE KOCH BROTHERS'S AMERICA'S SECOND LARGEST CONGLOMERATE...... HEAVILY INVOLVED IN ENERGY PRODUCTION!!! Koch industries have a strong presence in Wisconsin.
