CNOW for April 3, 2023
This week's conservation notices:
- Support AB 64: Expanding Access to the Well Compensation Grant Program
Support AB 64: Expanding Access to the Well Compensation Grant Program
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support AB 64, which is before the Assembly Committee on Agriculture on Tuesday.
Every Wisconsinite deserves to know the water coming out of their taps is safe to drink. Nitrate contamination is the most common groundwater contaminant in Wisconsin and can lead to health effects including cancer, birth defects, and even infant death. AB 64 supports Wisconsinites facing nitrate contamination by making small but necessary improvements to eligibility requirements under the state’s Well Compensation Grant Program. These changes will allow more people to access funds that protect their well water from the dangers of nitrate contamination.
Conservation Notices of the Week (CNOW) announces the pro-conservation positions on issues before the senate, assembly and/or governor in the week ahead to state legislators. Others wishing to follow activities in the state legislature also receive CNOW, including legislative staff, conservation voters, and media. All of these issues are tracked on the Vote Tracker. Issues in the CNOW may appear in the Conservation Scorecard.
