Oppose AJR 101: Prohibiting Ranked Choice Voting
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AJR 101, which is before the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections on Tuesday.
To protect our health and the health of our planet, we must explore creative election reforms that support a broader and more productive exchange of ideas. AJR 101 works against this goal by proposing a constitutional amendment that would prohibit the use of ranked-choice voting.
Support SB 619: Supporting Grazing on Perennial Grasslands
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support SB 619, which is before the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Tourism on Tuesday.
Managed grazing protects our water and builds healthy soil. Wisconsin should assist farmers in transitioning to managed grazing systems on perennial grasslands. SB 619 and AB 655 would create a new program for providing grants to farmers in making the transition to managed grazing.
Oppose SJR 5 and AJR 6: Eliminating the Governor’s Ability to Spend Federal Dollars
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose SJR 5 and AJR 6, which are before the Senate Committee on Universities and Revenue on Wednesday.
Wisconsin communities depend on the quick deployment of federal dollars to protect their drinking water, fund clean energy projects, and respond to extreme weather emergencies. SJR 5 and AJR 6 would eliminate the governor’s ability to quickly distribute this federal funding.
