MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The vice chairman of the state Building Commission has decided to let a Wisconsin Chippewa tribe keep a $250,000 grant to help build a cultural center.
Rep. Dean Kaufert, a Neenah Republican, wanted to rescind the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa's grant after the state's Chippewa bands raised walleye spearfishing goals by 5,300 fish. That forced the Department of Natural Resources to impose a one-walleye limit on nearly 200 northern Wisconsin lakes.
Kaufert complained the limit would devastate north woods tourism and proposed taking away the Lac du Flambeau's grant as payback.
He pulled back on Thursday, though, saying he expects the DNR will raise bag limits after the cold spring reduced the spearing take. He also pointed to a new state plan to boost walleye production.
