Mining bill could cut environmental review to 300 days

A bill that would dramatically speed up Wisconsin’s mining permitting process and threaten Wisconsin's wild resources is being considered by two Republican legislators. The bill would speed up environmental impact reviews from two years to 300 days.

PEOPLE FOR THE AMERICAN WAY: The Pro-Corporate Players in our Post-Citizens United Politics

WASHINGTON - A new report by People For the American Way profiles the work of nine organizations that are funneling money, in many cases from undisclosed donors, to help elect pro-corporate candidates in the 2010 elections.
