"Law for Thee, but Not for Jim Doyle"

The story is about the ex-DNR Secretary, but the telling part is here.

[Doyle's] Department of Administration, which is responsible for the construction of state-owned buildings, made five major modifications to the plant without getting permits required under federal law and enforced by the DNR. The $2.8 million in improvements should have triggered permits that would've required installation of pollution-control equipment to bring the 50-year-old plant into compliance with federal clean air standards

Eventually, that little move cost the State $200MM++.

Nice work, Jimbo.
