Doyle may change mind on DNR selection process
Gov. Jim Doyle might change his mind about letting the head of the state Department of Natural Resources be appointed by the agency's own board.
Former GOP Gov. Tommy Thompson took over that power in 1995. And some Democrats have tried ever since to give it back to the DNR Board, saying politics should have nothing to do with wildlife regulation.
Doyle has long agreed and has said he would sign the change if it ever got to his desk.
