March 11, 2011- A big thank-you to xoff at UppityWisconsin for this find. Remember that power plant provision? It wasn't in the document passed by the Senate on Wednesday. But guess what! It was changed before the Assembly vote on Thursday to include it.
Thursday, the fiscal bureau was forced to correct its memo describing the bill, after unearthing some more buried treasure. Seems there were a few things the original memo forgot to mention:
There are two items in the LFB's March 10 document that are not reflected in the March 9 document.
1. The March 10 document includes a provision of the substitute amendment on the Earned Income Tax Credit (page 3, #1).
2. The March 10 document includes a provision of the substitute amendment on the Sale and Contractual Operation of State-Owned Power Plants (page 20, #1)
And just for fun, here's a statement from Koch Industries, claiming they have no interest in acquiring Wisconsin power plants: CLICK HERE: (Don't worry- we archived a copy… Just in case.)
