Scott Walker appointee refusing to step down...

Combine stubborn refusal, partisan GOP obstruction, and now wasting WI taxpayer money on this.

(Republican) Lawmakers vote to hire private lawyers in lawsuit over chair of Natural Resources Board

MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) - Lawmakers have voted to use taxpayer money to hire outside attorneys in a lawsuit over the chair of the Natural Resources Board who is refusing to step down.

The votes came down Friday, and by a party line vote of 6-4, Republicans on the Joint Committee on Legislative Organization approved getting involved in the lawsuit.

Fred Prehn was appointed Chair of the Natural Resources Board by former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

The board sets the policy for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

Although Governor Tony Evers has appointed Sandra Naas as the new chair for the board, the state senate has not held a confirmation hearing for Naas.

Prehn has refused to step down following the end of his term in May, saying he should remain in place until the Senate confirms his replacement, as is state law.

When he shows up to work and makes a scene, arrest him for trespassing.
