The Wild and Scenic River's Act was one of Mondale's crowning achievements. Why we allowed an exception to this law to build a bridge is beyond me. I never would have thought Klobuchar and Franken would go for it. Future exception seekers will use the precedent to slowly undo the law, and our grandchildren can go visit the new mining operation on the Yellowstone.

We are building the new bridge because we NEED it. It will help keep the St. Croix cleaner than the current bridge, because cars will not be wasting gas while idling, waiting to cross the bridge. The guttering on new bridges directs water into settling ponds, unlike the old bridges, which discharge directly into the river. And what better place to put the new bridge, but right in the middle of the most industrial spot on the St. Croix?

The sewage treatment plant, coal fired power plant and window factory on the MN side are staying, so I always thought it was the best place for a much needed new bridge. I think residential better describes the WI side than not untouched.
