CNOW for May 15, 2023
This week's conservation notices:
- Oppose AB 45 & SB 49: Limiting Local Communities’ Ability to Address Climate Change
- Oppose LRB 0409 and LRB 3123: Poisoning Our Ponds
Oppose AB 45 & SB 49: Limiting Local Communities’ Ability to Address Climate Change
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AB 45, which is before the Assembly Committee on Energy and Utilities, and the Senate Committee on Utilities and Technology on Tuesday.
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. AB 45 & SB 49 would restrict local communities' ability to determine what fuel sources are used to meet their needs.
Oppose LRB 0409 and LRB 3123: Poisoning Our Ponds
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose LRB 0409 and LRB 3123, which are circulating for co-sponsorship.
Wisconsinites should have a right to know and influence what chemicals are being added to our water. LRB 0409 and LRB 3123 allow individuals to add certain chemicals to shared waters without DNR oversight and without the consent of impacted neighbors.
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.
