How much public land and tax dollars are needed so each WI resident is able to recreate?
Recently the WI Joint Finance Committee voted 12-4 to cut bonding for the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program. In addition the DNR has been told to sell 10,000 acres of state land by June 30, 2017. Since 1690 the DNR has purchased or bought easements to more than 560,000 acres in Wisconsin.
I understand the program costs taxpayers $1.5 million a week in interest costs. Do yo, like me find that a waste of tax dollars?
At a recent Washington County Republican Women's breakfast men and women attendees were asked our thoughts on the issue of stewardship funds and a majority agreed too much land has been taken out of private hands. Now is time to make some funding cuts.
I would like to thank Senator Alberta Darling, Rep. John Nygren, Rep. Dan LeMahieu and others on the Joint Finance Committee for their brave decision.
