Let’s give the state senate some shovels instead

Oh, if I put some thought and research into it, I bet I could find plenty of dumber ideas going through the legislature.  But State Senator Glenn Grothman’s idea to put the state in charge of plowing Madison would have to rank right up there on the list.

State Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend, said it’s time for the state to step in on snow removal decisions.

“It really wouldn’t be the state’s business if say the roads were inappropriately plowed in Manitowoc, because we don’t have many state buildings in Manitowoc. But with the state Capitol here, the biggest university in the state here, it’s important that Madison keep it’s roads clean,” said Grothman.

Grothman said he will introduce a bill to the state Legislature that would give the Wisconsin Department of Transportation authority for setting standards for salting and snow removal on Madison’s main roads.

“Quite frankly, Madison is the only city in the state who seems incapable of handling its snow storms,” Grothman said. State Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend, said it’s time for the state to step in on snow removal decisions.

Quite frankly, a Republican state senator should really know better. Even with the state Capitol and the university and the leftover hippies running the place, the rest of the state can survive just fine with Madison paralyzed by snow for a day. How about we train somebody on Grothman’s staff how to forward the phones in case of a snow emergency instead?
