Oppose SJR 90: Ignoring the Dangers of Oil and Natural Gas Pipelines
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose SJR 90, which is before the Assembly today.
We must swiftly transition to a clean energy economy that works for all communities, reduces pollution created by fossil fuels, invests in strategies that help us prepare for the impacts of climate change, and creates good paying jobs. To do this, we need to transition away from our use of oil and natural gas pipelines. SJR 90 proposes a resolution that ignores decades of dangerous accidents associated with oil and gas pipelines and encourages continued investment in them.
Oppose SB 900: Selling Our Shoreline
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose SB 900, which is before the Senate Committee on Government Operations, Legal Review and Consumer Protection today.
Under the Wisconsin Constitution, our navigable waters belong to all of us. This means that access to our shoreline is a right that must be protected. SB 900 violates this right by turning over our shoreline to private developers.
