DNR proposes erasing 11 obsolete rules
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
Walker ordered all state agencies in February to review their rules and change any language that burdens small businesses. DNR officials launched an initial review in April.
They identified 11 rules they say are obsolete, including limits on mercury discharges, restrictions on hunting in the Horicon wildlife refuge and air permit fees.
They say the rules duplicate other rules or govern programs that no longer exist and eliminating the language won’t harm the environment.
The agency plans to complete a comprehensive review by next spring. The Natural Resources Board ultimately would have to sign off on any changes.
