Wisconsin Democracy Campaign on the State of the State

Wednesday, 16 January 2013 | buzz

State of the StateOn the morning after the Governor’s State of the State address, host Jan Miyasaki speaks with Dane Varese of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Dane is the group’s Outreach Director.

 

One of the main themes of Governor Walker’s speech was the mining bill that he hopes the legislature will pass. It would clear the way for a huge iron ore mine in the Penokee hills of northern Wisconsin. Walker brought up union carpenters, millwrights, and operating engineers in hardhats to underscore his support for mining in the state. He noted the miner with a pickaxe on the Wisconsin State flag.

 

Dane Varese highlights the campaign contributions that billionaire mining executive Chris Cline and associates have made to Governor Walker and other state officials.
