Oneida Nation runs into opposition for renewable energy project
The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin has reportedly stopped work on a renewable energy facility amid local opposition.

The tribe began work on the 70,000-square-foot facility that will convert garbage into energy. But the village of Ashwaubenon and residents are worried about the environmental impacts.

At a public meeting, village president Mike Aubinger said the community will explore "all of our legal avenues of which to oppose" the project, The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported. He said he was told the tribe has put a halt to construction.
