A more fair way to pick the DNR board
Placeholder Image
I believe a compromise is in order concerning whether the secretary of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) should be selected by the DNR Board or appointed by the governor. First, I believe the selection process of the DNR Board needs to be reformed. Two members should be appointed by the governor with the approval of the Wisconsin State Legislature, two should be selected by the Legislature but subject to the veto of the governor, and three should be elected by the voters of Wisconsin.
