Statement of Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters
Regarding Governor Walker’s Mining Remarks in the State of the State Address
Governor Walker’s theatrics and fabricated job numbers don’t change the facts. His plan to rollback protections for Wisconsin’s air, water, and land to benefit a single out-of-state mining company threatens to contaminate our water with toxins like arsenic, lead, and mercury and cause irreparable damage to our tourism economy.
