Walker And Prosser Crushed Regulations On Koch Industry’s Phosphorus Pollution In Wisconsin

Shortly after helping to elect Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), Koch Industries opened a new lobbying office in Madison near the state capitol. However, little has been disclosed about the Koch lobbying agenda in

ThinkProgress has learned that the Walker administration, along with state Supreme Court judge David Prosser, has quietly worked to allow Koch’s many Georgia Pacific paper plants to pollute Wisconsin by
pouring thousands of pounds of phosphorus into the water.

total phosphorus pollution in the Lower Fox River near Green Bay.

  • You’re an honorary Wisconsinite as of now. Great article. Keep it up! We’re fighting a big battle here against huge odds, but I think we’re going to do it. We need all the help we can get.
    You can find lots of updated info on the 540,000 to see Scott Walker out of WI in January, 2012 Facebook page. We would love to have you come in and join us there. It’s like a family and you will fit right in.
    Thank you!
