Wisconsin: Two state Senators threatened with recall over vote on Mining legislation

An apparently non-Walker related Wisconsin Senate recall effort is brewing. A conservative group called Citizens for Responsible Government Network is looking to recall two state Senators (one Democrat, one Republican) for their opposition to mining legislation that passed the assembly, but failed in the Senate.

The Senators are Bob Jauch (D) and Dale Schultz (R). The petitioners claim that the legislation would have spurred job and development growth by helping Gogebic Taconite open an iron mine near Lake Superior; Jauch (whose district the mine would have been located in) and Schultz said that they wanted environmentally responsible legislation.
