SEWRPC backs off

The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission backed off its power grab for now, but it doesn't look like this bad idea to anoint itself water management ruler is sinking into a well-deserved watery grave. Jim Rowen has the scoop.

The big problem with this move is that SEWRPC does not enforce its own rules. Look at how much (not) has been done to enforce and imnplement the non-point source pollution rules in the areawide water quality plan. Politics aside, it does not make sense to give responsibility and $$$$ to a planning organization that does not have any real enforcement powers.
