THIS WEEK’S NOTICE:

Oppose SB 295: Creating Unnecessary Hurdles to Protecting Public Health and Natural Resources

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters urges you to oppose SB 295, which is before the Senate Committee on Labor and Regulatory Reform on Tuesday.

Wisconsin citizens depend on regulations spread out over state agencies to ensure protection of our public health and natural resources. SB 295 creates a burdensome and bureaucratic framework that requires the state to reauthorize all state regulations every seven years. It is an overreach of the legislature to continue to micro-manage technical agency rules. Agency staff, who have the necessary expertise, should manage regulations.
