Doyle says he won't give up power to appoint DNR head
Gov. Jim Doyle now says he won't give up his power to appoint the secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
That's a flip-flop from a long-time stand he took earlier and it confirms a change of heart he first hinted in January.
In a letter this week, Doyle said he has watched secretaries appointed by both governors and the Natural Resources Board, and he believes a secretary under the governor's authority can be much more effective.
