Budget committee approves funding for dead deer removal

MADISON - The state Department of Natural Resources would continue to get funding to pay for removal of deer struck by motorists on Wisconsin roadways under a vote by the Legislature's budget committee.

The Republican-controlled Joint Finance Committee voted against Gov. Scott Walker's recommendation to shift the cost to local governments.

The DNR spends about $700,000 a year contracting with local governments to remove the dead deer.
