Except for the petroleum production, this list IS Wisconsin.
Even as we see the Janesville WI GM plant destroyed by government policies, we can expect this same regulation to entrap much of the rest of the state.

[T]he nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau, have questioned whether Wisconsin can legally or practically stop large oil companies like Exxon and British Petroleum from raising prices at the pump to make up for the state tax.
No other state taxes oil companies and bars them from passing the tax along at the pump, the Fiscal Bureau said.
"It is likely the oil industry will litigate swiftly in the hope that successful litigation would put an end to any efforts by other states to enact similar provisions," the Fiscal Bureau said in a memo for lawmakers.
The tax is a percentage based on revenues of the oil companies, not their profits as Doyle has repeatedly characterized it. Because fuel may be bought and sold several times before it gets to the pump, tracking the costs of each buyer and seller would be difficult, the Fiscal Bureau said.
