Another Walker problem: 8th Worst in Nation for Water Quality, and no Plan.

Besides passing a mining bill that lowered environmental regulations, what else has Scott Walker done to "preserve" Wisconsin's water quality? Perhaps I missed that story:
jsonline: The water quality at Wisconsin beaches has been rated the eighth worst in the nation, based on the percentage of water samples taken in 2013 in which bacterial counts exceeded the standards of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Wisconsin placed 23rd out of 30 coastal and Great Lakes states, according to a report released Wednesday by the Natural Resources Defense Council. Fourteen percent of Wisconsin's water samples failed to meet the EPA's standards for safe beach water.
