- Environmentalists rip proposed Foxconn permit rollbacks
By TODD RICHMOND, Associated Press - Monday Jul 31, 2017
(AP) — Wisconsin conservationists warned Monday that Gov. Scott Walker's plan to exempt a massive Foxconn electronic plant from key environmental regulations would leave the public in the dark about the plant's impact, jeopardize wetlands and set an alarming precedent.The bill includes provisions that would lift the requirement that state agencies prepare environmental impact statements on plant construction and operations.The measure also would exempt Foxconn from obtaining state permits for a wide range of activities, including filling wetlands, building on lake or river beds, changing the course of streams, building artificial water bodies that connect to existing waterways and modifying shorelines.Midwest Environmental Advocates attorney Sarah Geers said environmental impact statements provide the public with a detailed, wide-lens analysis of a project's impact, enabling builders and government officials to find ways to mitigate the effects.Since Foxconn hasn't selected a site yet, no one knows if any wetlands will be affected, he said.
- Wisconsin DNR chief: Foxconn bill won't harm environment
By TODD RICHMOND, Associated Press - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
(AP) — Wisconsin's top conservation official promised Wednesday that regulatory rollbacks in Gov. Scott Walker's incentive plan for a giant Foxconn plant won't harm the state's environment.[...] the proposal would lift the requirement that state agencies prepare environmental impact statements on plant construction and operations.Foxconn also wouldn't need to obtain state permits for a wide range of activities, including filling wetlands, building on lake or river beds, changing the course of streams, building artificial water bodies that connect to existing waterways and modifying shorelines.The lack of environmental impact statements will leave the public in the dark about what harm the plant might cause and the lack of permit requirements will lead to the destruction of wetlands.The budget was supposed to be in place by July 1 but Republican infighting over how to pay for road construction has brought work on the spending plan to a standstill.

- Homeland Security will waive laws to build US border wall
By ELLIOT SPAGAT, Associated Press - Tuesday Aug 1, 2017
The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement it will publish in "the coming days" in the Federal Register a notice exempting the government from the National Environmental Protection Act, which calls for extensive reviews of environmental impacts, and a host of other laws on 15 miles of border extending east from the Pacific Ocean.A law passed in 2005 gave Homeland Security broad authority to waive "all legal requirements" to build border barriers following years of ultimately unsuccessful court challenges to border wall construction in San Diego on grounds that it violated environmental laws.Last week, the House of Representatives approved the administration's request for $1.6 billion to start building Trump's border wall, which would include replacing 14 miles (22 kilometers) in San Diego covered by the latest waiver and building 60 miles (96 kilometers) of new barriers in Texas' Rio Grande Valley.
