CNOW for Jan. 17, 2024

Today's conservation notices:

  • Oppose AB 579: Selling Our Shoreline

Oppose AB 579: Selling Our Shoreline

Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AB 579, which is before the Assembly on Thursday.

Under the Wisconsin Constitution, our waters belong to all of us. Public access to our shoreline is a right that must be protected into the future, for all people. AB 579 would violate our Public Trust Doctrine by permanently turning over our shoreline to private developers and allowing them to restrict access.

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.
