Before you vote, know the score.
At the end of each legislative session, Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters brings you the Conservation Scorecard so that you can see how your legislator is voting on the issues you care about.
One of the most important things you’ll find in this year’s Scorecard is the amazing story of you. It’s pretty clear that this was one of the worst legislative session on record for conservation. And yet, because conservationists from every corner of the state got involved, we were able to do things like save and fund the Stewardship Program, stop efforts to privatize drinking water systems, make vast improvements to the horrid Polluter and Developer Grab Bags, and protect the Great Lakes from plastic microbeads. That makes you a Conservation Champion in our book! Hopefully, your legislators are Conservation Champions too.
