Glenn Grothman: wrong at home, weird in Northern Wisconsin.

Hi everyone,

I just post 'em when I find 'em.

From: Marketplace of Ideas: Gas prices and Madison

"Similarly, Doyle has said publicly that he would sign a bill ending the minimum markup law if it reached his desk. No such bill has reached his desk, in part due to strange votes of people like Sen. Glenn Grothman (R–West Bend), who in 2005 voted in committee against ending the law over concerns that gas stations wouldn’t be able to cover the cost of credit card transactions. It’s not clear what part of the state Constitution stipulates that legislators’ duties include monitoring gas station credit card transaction fees."

And yet Glenn believes government interferes too much in everything -- except, apparently, gas station credit card transaction fees.
