Proposal gives Scott Walker administration more power to sell state property

http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/proposal-gives-walker-administration-more-power-to-sell-state-property-qm9vsmk-208088221.html

Madison - Gov. Scott Walker's administration would gain broad authority to sell state property - including prisons, highways, heating plants and university dormitories - under a plan legislators will take up Tuesday...

Proceeds would be used to chip away at the state's $8 billion debt, but the state entities that formerly owned the properties might not see any benefit from the sales. So, a dorm built with student fees could potentially be sold to pay down the debt for a highway expansion, or vice versa.
Critics say the plan that's part of the GOP governor's budget proposal could saddle the state with higher day-to-day costs - such as buying power and steam to heat prisons and dorms - after it sells the properties...

Under the governor's plan, the state also could negotiate sales with individual buyers without going through a public bidding process. Any sales would have to go through a "competitive and transparent process," though that process is not defined and includes no explanation of how negotiations with a single buyer could be competitive...


Get ready Wisconsin - this tyrant is going to sell of our highways paid for by the taxpayers of this state to private and likely foreign companies - with no public bidding process and then the toll roads will begin - he is also going to sell prisons, university dorms, and power plants - power plants paid for by us! All of this will fall into the hands of private corporations which will make HUGE profits once they obtain them and guess who is going to pay through the nose!  People of Wisconsin - prepare to buy your "I-Pass" cards to have the privilege to use the highways that  YOU paid for!
