Wis. town barred from beefing up farm water rules
MILWAUKEE — The Wisconsin Supreme Court says a rural town does not have the authority to impose tougher water quality standards on a livestock farm than the state requires.

At issue was a state law designed to make farm regulations consistent across Wisconsin.
