Oppose LRB 1803/1: Making the State Pay Twice for Land

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters urges you to oppose LRB 1803/1 which is currently circulating for co-sponsorship.

The Knowles Nelson Stewardship Program is meant to facilitate new land purchases in Wisconsin for recreation and conservation. LRB 1803/1 forces the DNR to use Stewardship Program money to purchase land the state of Wisconsin already owns, thus decreasing the purchase and protection of new land.
