Oppose AB 852: Selling Our Public Lands

Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to oppose AB 852, which is before the Assembly Committee on Forestry, Parks and Outdoor Recreation on Wednesday.

The Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program is one of the best tools we have for purchasing and protecting lands for everyone to enjoy. AB 852 would make it easier to sell property that has been protected under this program. This works against the purpose of the program, and would create opportunities for selling our public lands.

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.
