CNOW for March 20, 2023

This week's conservation notices:

  • Oppose AB 70: Outlawing Protected Protest

Oppose AB 70: Outlawing Protected Protest

Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AB 70, which is before the Assembly on Wednesday.

The right to protest is central to the ability to advocate for a world where every person can breathe clean air, drink safe water, and protect the lands we love. AB 70 would create a vague definition of “riot” that could penalize whole groups of people for the actions of a few. AB 70 leaves too many questions of legality up to interpretation by police under rapidly changing conditions.

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.
