The Latest Ethanol Mandate

Cross-posted at THEB.

We blogged about yet another attempt by clueless legislators to ram an ethanol mandate down the throats of Wisconsin residents as a sop to the well-heeled and well-financed campaign contributors from the ethanol industry.

The latest pair of boobs (apologies to real pairs of boobs) are state Sen. Pat Kreitlow and state Rep. Scott Suder.

Kreitlow is the guy who said earlier this week that if it weren’t for Charlie Sykes and Mark Belling, Wisconsin would already have had a statewide mandate for ethanol. Actually, he’s only partially right. It isn’t talk radio and bloggers that has stopped repeated attempts from the ethanol whores to impose their will on the people of Wisconsin.

It’s people like you who contacted their senators and representatives and told them not just “No!” but “Hell No!”

It’s time now to contact Sen. Kreitlow and Rep. Suder and give them that not-so-subtle message again. Here’s how to get in touch with them:

Sen. Pat Kreitlow (Democrat)
Room 10 South
State Capitol
P.O. Box 7882
Madison, Wis. 53707
Telephone: (608) 266-7511 Or (888) 437-9436
Fax: 608-267-6794

Rep. Scott Suder (Republican)
Madison Office
Room 324 East
State Capitol
P.O. Box 8953
Madison, Wis. 53708
Telephone: (608) 267-0280 Or (888) 534-0069
Fax: (608) 282-3669

Contact them and ask them: “What part of ‘No!’ don’t you understand?” and remind them they work for the people of the state of Wisconsin, not the fat cat lobbyists walking through the state Capitol handing out $100 bills in plain brown wrappers.
