  • Support SB 85: Conservation Patron License for Disabled Veterans

Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support SB 85, which is up for a vote in the Senate Natural Resources and Energy Committee on Tuesday.

Wisconsin currently honors the sacrifice of our veterans who have been awarded a Purple Heart by offering reduced rates for a Conservation Patron License. A Conservation Patron’s License provides various hunting and fishing licenses, and state parks and trails access. SB 85 allows a Wisconsin veteran to be issued a Conservation Patron License at a reduced rate if he or she produces evidence showing that he or she has a service-connected disability.

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.
