There are 2 bills working their way through the WI State Legislature. SB279 and AB408
These identical bills are giant and were introduced by the "nonpartisan" Joint Legislative Council in order to fly an ethanol mandate under our radar. Unelected bureaucrats would be given the authority to set mandated levels of ethanol in our fuel. Theses bureaucrats could even change the level of required ethanol blend to a point in which our "old, big-gas guzzling, clunkers" (by the way that is every car including brand new ones that aren't hybrids) couldn't run on! All to FORCE people to buy new more "fuel efficient" death trap, go carts because we must save the planet. FYI - your boat, ATV, farm tractor, lawn mover, rototiller, etc...WON'T RUN! Read below AND the attached article...
According to the Office of Energy Independence, Wisconsin ethanol production and consumption have skyrocketed in recent years — and the growth in our state biofuel market was accomplished without the need for an ethanol mandate. Although state gasoline sales have remained relatively flat throughout this decade, ethanol has bucked this trend, with sharp increases in consumption from one year to the next.
Despite this trend, legislation pending in both houses of the Legislature would set steep ethanol consumption goals, and give unelected bureaucrats the authority to establish sales mandates to reach those goals. When fully implemented, Senate Bill 279 and Assembly Bill 408 would authorize the Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection (DATCP) to establish annual sales mandates of nearly 30% ethanol.

For the past 29 years, [John] McKnight has split his time between Chicago -- where he is a retired professor of communications studies at Northwestern University -- and a house he owns in rural Spring Green. McKnight was a co-founder of the Gamaliel Foundation in Chicago in 1969. A national training program for community organizers, the foundation initially fought to protect African-American homeowners on Chicago's west side from discrimination by banks and lenders.
It was named after a mentor of the apostle Paul from Christian scripture, which was also a point of reference for the legendary Saul Alinsky, who began community organizing in Chicago in 1938 with the Back of the Yards Community Council in the city's stockyards. McKnight remains a board member of Gamaliel, which now has about 50 affiliates in many states. Obama, the 44th president of the United States, was director of a Gamaliel affiliate called the Developing Communities Project on Chicago's south side from June 1985 to May 1988. It was during those years that Obama came to Spring Green.
No sooner had we celebrated the exit of Barack Obama's Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones, because of his Communist connections, another off-the-wall Administration embarrassment surfaced. President Obama nominated for commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) a woman who signed a radical manifesto endorsing polygamy. We thought our nation had settled the polygamy issue a century and a half ago, but this nomination makes it a 21st century controversy. Obama's nominee for the EEOC, a lesbian law-school professor named Chai R. Feldblum, signed a 2006 manifesto endorsing polygamous households (i.e., "in which there is more than one conjugal partner").
