THIS WEEK’S NOTICE

Oppose Senate Substitute Amendment 1 to AB 947: Denying Voters Representation

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters urges you to oppose Senate Substitute Amendment 1 to AB 947, which is before the Senate Committee on Elections and Utilities on Wednesday.

Wisconsin citizens deserve to be represented by elected officials in the legislative body. Senate Substitute Amendment 1 to AB 947 seeks to deny voters their right to elected legislative representation. This amendment specifically seeks to undermine our election process after a judge determined that the governor must hold special elections after seats become vacant.
