    • On May 09, 2009, by caferrell - This is a terrible bill that would give the Federal govt. jurisdiction over anything that is wet including seasonal mud flats. This means that the Feds could enter into your property and dictate what you can do with your land. It also means that the Great Lake States and Provinces could not protect the Great Lakes from being pumped dry to feed the growth of California and the Southwest. In particularly that area, Feingold has sold out his own state: Wisconsin.
