Support LRB 3051 & LRB 3128: Restoring Clean Energy Schools

Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support LRB 3051 & LRB 3128, which are currently circulating for co-sponsorship.

Many of Wisconsin’s schools are grappling with rising costs due, in part, to increased fuel costs and having to heat and cool old, inefficient buildings. Up until last session, school districts could take advantage of an existing state law to make energy efficiency improvements without having those energy projects be counted under their revenue caps. LRB 3051 & LRB 3128 would restore the ability of school districts to finance clean energy projects outside of the school revenue caps, thereby saving schools much needed money, while also reducing their pollution.

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.
