International group considers Wisconsin one of four most improved states in energy efficiency
WISCONSIN - An international energy efficiency group ranked Wisconsin in the top four most improved states in the U.S. when it comes to energy efficiency.
American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) is an international non-profit. The group pushes for better energy efficiency around the world.
They ranked Wisconsin 23rd in the U.S. last year, but Wisconsin made their most improved list for 2014.
"A shift in efficiency administrators had caused a temporary drop in saving," ACEEE State Policy Research Analyst Annie Gilleo said. "We are seeing that Wisconsin is once again realizing consistent levels of electricity and natural gas savings."
MADISON - A federal appeals court has unanimously rejected a conservative group's request to reconsider a ruling last month tossing a lawsuit challenging an investigation into possible illegal campaign coordination.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday rejected the request from Wisconsin Club for Growth to rehear the case after a three-judge panel last month sided with investigators.
Hunters kill 98 Wisconsin wolves, season could be over soon
WISCONSIN - It looks like Wisconsin's third wolf season could be over soon.
The season began on Oct. 15. It's slated to run until Feb. 28 or until hunters reach the 150-animal statewide kill limit.
The Department of Natural Resources says hunters had bagged 98 wolves as of Wednesday, leaving them 52 shy of the statewide quota. The DNR closed four of its six wolf zones over the last week after hunters quickly reached or exceeded zone-specific kill limits.
