Budget panel removes $250,000 for wind power study  

Credit:  newsok.com ~~

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The Legislature’s budget-writing committee has voted to remove $250,000 for a new study on the negative effects of wind power.

Gov. Scott Walker had called for spending the money on a study to look at the effects of noise and shadow flicker on people who live near wind turbines.

But the Joint Finance Committee on Wednesday voted to have the Public Service Commission review existing studies, rather than spend $150,000 to commission a new one.

Democratic Rep. Chris Taylor objected, because the PSC would be allowed to look at studies done by anyone, not just those that are peer reviewed. She says that opens the door to junk science being considered.

State studies done in 2010 and 2014 were inconclusive as to whether wind turbines caused adverse health effects.
