Oppose LRB 0307 and LRB 0310: Exacerbating Felony Disenfranchisement
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose LRB 0307 and LRB 0310 which are being circulated for co-sponsorship.
Voting is a right. Currently, Wisconsin has one of the most stringent voting rights restoration policies in the nation, only allowing rights restoration after fully completing the terms of a sentence – including probation, parole, and extended supervision. LRB 0307 and LRB 0310 would make this problem even worse by adding additional requirements before rights are restored. This would take us backward in the fight to protect Wisconsinites’ freedom to vote.
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.
