GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Fred Prehn, the Chair of the Natural Resources Board, has refused to step down from his position, despite his term having ended months ago.

The move has caused Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul, among others, to file a lawsuit regarding the situation.

Prehn has previously stated his decision is not political, however others dispute that.

However, this isn’t the first time a member of that board has not stepped down at the end of their terms.
