CNOW for Sept. 25, 2023
Today's conservation notices:
- Support SB 39: Improving Absentee Ballot Tracking
- Oppose AB 318: Poisoning Our Ponds
Support SB 39: Improving Absentee Ballot Tracking
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support SB 39, which is before the Senate Committee on Shared Revenue, Elections, and Consumer Protection on Tuesday.
It should be easy for absentee voters to know when their ballot is received and counted. SB 39 improves absentee ballot tracking by creating an absentee ballot text message confirmation system. This would give voters the opportunity to be automatically notified when their absentee ballot is received.
Oppose AB 318: Poisoning Our Ponds
Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AB 318, which is before the Assembly Committee on Environment on Thursday.
Wisconsinites should have a right to know and influence what chemicals are being added to our water. AB 318 would 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.
