Oppose AB 45 & SB 49: Limiting Local Communities’ Ability to Address Climate Change
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AB 45 & SB 49, which are before the Assembly on Wednesday.
Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing the planet. Local governments in Wisconsin have been on the forefront of developing plans to make sure that the energy produced in their communities is safe, locally available when possible, and pollution-free. SB 49 & AB 45 would restrict local communities' ability to determine what fuel sources are used to meet their needs by unnecessarily mandating that they can't exclude natural gas.
Oppose AB 320: Weakening Mining-Related Waterway Protections
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AB 320, which is before the Assembly on Wednesday.
To safeguard our water, we need to maintain strong protections against pollution generated by mining. AB 320 would allow non-metallic mining sites to operate closer to shared waterways. This would increase the risk of polluting those waterways.
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.
