Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources secretary Cathy Stepp has faced her share of controversy.
Now, former Dane County executive Kathleen Falk is calling for her removal.
Falk – one of four Democrats hoping to defeat Governor Scott Walker in a recall election – believes environmental enforcement has suffered under Stepp’s watch.
WUWM Environmental Reporter Susan Bence talked with Stepp Monday – after she spoke briefly at a water quality conference in downtown Milwaukee.
Stepp says DNR experts have weighed in on proposed environmental legislation – including the failed iron ore mining bill – every step of the way.
