Support AB 11: Providing State Park Passes to Fourth Grade Families
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support AB 11, which is before the Assembly Committee on Forestry, Parks and Outdoor Recreation on Tuesday.
To protect health and quality of life for future generations, we must ensure young Wisconsinites are connected to our waters and lands. AB 11 provides an opportunity for every fourth grade student in Wisconsin to experience our state parks with their families by providing a free state park vehicle admission sticker.
Cosponsor LRB 0895: Allowing Local Protections Against Pesticides
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support LRB 0895, which is circulating for cosponsorship.
Our kids have the right to grow, learn, and play in spaces that are safe from pesticides. In many communities, pesticides on private lawns can have immediate and harmful impacts on nearby public schools and parks. LRB 0895 would allow communities to better protect these spaces by limiting the use of pesticides on private lawns.
Cosponsor LRB 0900: Restoring Local Limitations on Single-Use Products
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support LRB 0900, which is circulating for co-sponsorship.
To tackle climate change and limit the waste clogging our landfills, we need to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel intensive, single-use products like plastic bags. LRB 0900 would restore local communities' ability to enact policies that reduce our reliance on these products.
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.
