Madison – The state Senate rejected mining legislation Tuesday designed to ease the regulatory path for a large open pit mine in northern Wisconsin.

The vote was another setback for the effort to streamline mining regulations, but legislative leaders still cling to hope they can approve a bill before the legislative session ends next week.

The measure senators rejected 17-16 was a version that the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee had approved Monday. Majority Republicans hope to send the matter to a legislative committee later Tuesday so they can bring it up another day.

Sen. Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center) voted with all Democrats to reject the measure.

Why are the senate democrats and Dale Schultz against jobs in Wisconsin? Call them and ask them why?

Will Unions Call Out Wisconsin Democrats, Not Likely, It’s Politics

Labor unions back mining bill
The Business Journal
Date: Monday, March 5, 2012, 3:36pm CST – Last Modified: Tuesday, March 6, 2012, 12:52pm CST

Five labor unions announced that they support proposed legislation in Wisconsin that would streamline the permitting process for iron ore mines.

The labor unions pledging their support are the International Union of Operating Engineers , Local 139; the Iron Workers District Council of the North Central States; the Wisconsin Pipe Trades Association and its Affiliated Local Unions; the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters; and the Wisconsin Laborer’s District Council. The organizations join the Wisconsin Mining Association in backing AB 426, which has passed the Assembly. A Senate version still needs approval, but is facing resistance from a GOP legislator despite revisions and compromises proposed from the Assembly version.

“This is a significant step forward for workers, job creation and the future of mining in Wisconsin,” said Tim Sullivan, former president and CEO of Bucyrus International Inc. and now chairman of the WMA. “We are pleased that these labor trade organizations, representing union workers from all across Wisconsin, were able to move beyond traditional partisan politics and support a plan that will create thousands of family-supporting jobs and help invigorate Wisconsin’s economy.”

If these unions want to work in the mines, why are they not telling the democrats in Wisconsin to vote for the bill. Not the water downed bill.  Seems the unions and democrats are playing games with jobs in Wisconsin.

Another Example Of: Why Would Anyone Vote For Kathleen Falk

Democrat Falk wants to overturn Wis. voter ID law

Updated: Mar 06, 2012 1:21 PM CST

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A Wisconsin Democrat who plans to run against Gov. Scott Walker in a possible recall election says she will overturn the state’s contentious new voter identification law if she is elected.

Democrat Kathleen Falk said Tuesday at a news conference that the new law discourages voters. But she says it’s difficult to measure that now because the spring primary garnered a small voter turnout.

Walker has been targeted for a recall, along with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four Republican state senators.

Falk couldn’t unilaterally undo the voter ID law. The Legislature, which is currently controlled by Republicans, would first have to pass a bill repealing it.

Read at WBAY Green Bay.

You have to show an ID to buy alcohol, medicine, check into a hotel, getting into a “R” rated movie, the list goes on and on and Kathleen Falk doesn’t want it for voting! Is that the only way democrats can get elected is with fraudulent votes? Another reason to keep Scott Walker as Governor of Wisconsin.

WTAQ, Green Bay Tea Party March 7, 2009

March 7th is the anniversary of the first Tea Party in Green Bay. We have to thank Jerry Bader at WTAQ and Mark Savard for putting that tea party together. I am linking to my other web site to bring back the memories of the first tea party in Green Bay Wisconsin.

Green Bay Tea Party Gallery
Pictures of the Green Bay Tea Party held at Titletowm Brewery. The MSM (as far as I can tell only 3) put the crowd at hundreds ( 200- 300), it was more like 1500 to 2000 people. Bunch of saps!

Well here goes, photographer was Mrs Berry Laker and comments are by me. Mrs BL found a new love ( besides me) shooting with a camera. Thanks dear.

Link to Berry Laker Blog where you can see many images and comments. I do have to say, thank God Steve Kagen is no longer in Congress.

Madison: Voter Fraud Front and Center Again In Wisconsin

Judge grants temporarily injunction barring enforcement of voter ID law in April election

A Dane County Judge on Tuesday granted a temporary injunction that bars the enforcement of the state photo ID law at polling places during the general election on April 3.
Circuit Judge David Flanagan said that the Milwaukee Branch of the NAACP and Voces de la Frontera had demonstrated that their lawsuit against Gov. Scott Walker and the state Government Accountability Board would probably succeed on its merits and had demonstrated the likelihood of irreparable harm if the photo ID law is allowed to stand.
Flanagan ordered Walker and the GAB to “cease immediately any effort to enforce or implement the photo identification requirements” of the law, pending a trial on a permanent injunction scheduled before him on April 16.

Stocks Fall, Four More Years Of President Obama?

Dow off over 200 points as economy, Greece hit Wall Street

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks fell the most in nearly three months on Tuesday with the Dow tumbling more than 200 points as recent government data rekindled concerns about global growth and a deadline loomed for private holders of Greek debt to agree to hefty losses.

Volatility soared, with the CBOE Volatility Index or VIXon track to close above its 50-day average for the first time since November. More than a dozen stocks fell for every rising issue on the New York Stock Exchange, with bank and miner shares among the top decliners.

The recent gains in equities have been supported in part by expectations that Europe’s credit crisis will be contained and China’s economy will avoid a hard landing. Recent data seems to partly undermine those assumptions.

Schultz, Democrats Killing Hopes For Jobs In Northern Wisconsin

You have to wonder why Dale Schultz and Wisconsin Democrats are against mining in northern Wisconsin? You will see here how a lot of people in the area feel about jobs and the economy for Northern Wisconsin. It is worth watching the videos to get a feel of the mining issue.

Hopes of an old mining town live in WI mining bill
March 5th, 2012

By Ryan Ekvall and M.D. Kittle | Wisconsin Reporter

HURLEY — Bars, restaurants and strip clubs line both sides of Silver Street, Hurley’s main drag.

The brick buildings, built in the early 20th century, are like those found in many of Wisconsin’s small towns. Signs hang from the front the buildings — the Iron Nugget, the Silver Dollar Saloon, the Idle Hour.

Banners on lampposts up and down Silver Street depict dancers, loggers, trappers and miners, all remnants of Hurley’s past.

Those are fixtures of Hurley today.

“The mine would mean us being able to survive,” said Hurley Mayor Joseph Pinardi.

But there appears little, if any, opposition to any action that would bring back mining to Hurley — a town that traces its roots to the Badger State’s rich mining history.

Signs, like “Mining is our history; mining is our culture; mining is our future,” and “Support Mining, We Need Jobs Now” hang on front doors of establishments and pepper front yards much like “Recall Walker” placards in Madison.

In part, the signs serve to raise awareness to tourists visiting the area. In whole, they’re a statement of hope for the town’s future.

There is plenty of opposition to the Assembly bill, much from Democrats and environmental groups and Wisconsin’s tribal nations. There is some opposition to opening up iron-ore mining at all. And there certainly is opposition in northwest Wisconsin.

We need an up and down vote in Madison to see who is and who is not for jobs in Wisconsin. To Jeff and Scott Fitzgerald, bring the bill to a vote!

Wis: Unions Obsessed, Addicted To Kathleen Falk

Union support could hurt Falk in recall election

STEVEN VERBURG | Wisconsin State Journal | [email protected] | 608-252-6118 | No Comments Posted | Posted: Tuesday, March 6, 2012 7:00 am

As major unions began endorsing Kathleen Falk in the recall effort against Gov. Scott Walker, some union members wished labor leaders had waited for more candidates to emerge.

Those unions “may have done more harm to Kathleen Falk than good,” said Jim Palmer, executive director the Wisconsin Professional Police Association union. “She is going to have to carry this moniker of the hand-picked union candidate. I think Wisconsin wants a broader agenda.”

Veto commitment
Falk’s endorsements came from Service Employees International Union, the American Federation of Teachers, United Food and Commercial Workers, the three state councils of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the Wisconsin Education Association Council.
Some members of Madison Teachers Inc. union, a WEAC affiliate, were uneasy with the early endorsement, said MTI executive director John Matthews

AFSCME invited every possible candidate to be interviewed and considered for endorsement, said Jason Sidener, a union staff member. Barrett declined to take part in the process, Sidener said. Falk, Vinehout and four others were interviewed. Several of the candidates said they would use the veto, but Falk made the strongest statement, Sidener said.

WUPN: Seems the unions are clouded with collective bargaining sugar plums dancing in their heads. Wisconsin unions are so obsessed with collective bargaining, they are like an addict hooked on cocaine. Eventually it will be their demise.
