Support SB 252: Natural Flood Prevention Demonstration Project

Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support SB 252, which is before the Senate Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday.

As climate change continues to increase extreme weather events, Wisconsin communities need more tools, including wetlands, to help reduce flood risks and damages. SB 252 will fund the creation of flooding demonstration projects in Ashland County to help governments understand how restoring and protecting natural areas can help reduce flooding.

Conservation Notices of the Week (CNOW) announce 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, to be released in the summer of 2020.
