How Walker's Wisconsin Plan Allows For the Selling of Energy Assets With No Bids.

The fight in Wisconsin is over Governor Walker's 144-page Budget Repair Bill. The parts everyone is focusing on have to do with the right to collectively bargain being stripped from public sector unions (except for the unions that supported Walker running for Governor). Focusing on this misses a large part of what the bill would do.

The bill would allow for the selling of state-owned heating/cooling/power plants without bids and without concern for the legally-defined public interest.
