NewsTalk 1130WISN: Line 5 Pipeline Essential Midwest Energy Needs

MILWAUKEE – WMC’s Scott Manley joined The Vicki McKenna Show to talk about Gov.

Manley explained how critical the pipeline is to getting fuel necessary to heat homes in Wisconsin winters and that shutting down the pipeline would not eliminate the demand for energy.
