MADISON (AP) - Large farms could hire experts to craft their pollution and construction permit applications under a reorganization plan the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday.

DNR officials issued a news release Wednesday announcing the plan, calling it a "strategic realignment effort," but the release contains very few details.
