MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Jim Doyle says he likely will not call lawmakers back into session to pass one of his top priorities on clean energy.
The Legislature ended its work for the year early Friday morning without passing a bill that called for Wisconsin to get 25 percent of its energy from renewable resources by 2025.
Doyle said Friday he is disappointed that the measure didn’t get enough backing to pass, but something that major could take years to build the support needed to pass.
He said support for it is strong in the Legislature and he has no doubts it will come back. He also said it wasn’t urgent for it to pass this year since the state already has a goal of getting 10 percent of its energy from renewable resources by 2015.
