Wisconsin Governor Proposes increases in water quality spending, cuts elsewhere
Excerpt from the Wausau Daily Herald.

Gov. Scott Walker is proposing several initiatives and changes related to environment and natural resources management, including:

• The state will add $20 million over the biennium to reduce non-point source water pollution, such as runoff, through increased nutrient management planning and other pollution abatement practices.

• The governor proposes to eliminate payments for aids in lieu of taxes on future land purchases through the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund, and require local governments affected by these purchases to pass a nonbinding resolution in support or opposition to that purchase. The Department of Natural Resources must consider that nonbinding resolution before making a final purchase.

•Eliminate the Office of Energy Independence and merge its duties into the Department of Administration’s Division of Energy.

• Provide $9.4 million for the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program, $353 million in revenue obligation bonds for the Clean Water Fund Program and $3 million in bond revenue for contaminated site repair.
