2024 Partisan Primary

Another set of constitutional amendments is coming. They must not pass.

On Aug. 13, the partisan primary election, voters will again be asked to decide on two ballot measures – if passed both would have significant negative impacts on Wisconsin.

These will ask if Wisconsin should amend its constitution to prevent the governor from spending federal dollars without legislative approval and if the legislature should be the highest authority on budget appropriations.

It’s imperative that Wisconsin votes NO on both of these measures.

If these pass, Wisconsin’s efforts to fight climate change will be impaired. The Inflation Reduction Act is the largest investment in climate action in history. We finally have resources to fight climate change and Gov. Evers is taking full advantage of this once-in-a-generation opportunity to advance progress on Wisconsin’s clean energy plan.

These measures would also impact the ability to quickly respond in case of an emergency or a disaster. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov. Evers quickly dispersed federal aid to those who needed it most. Under the proposed constitutional amendments, that power would be diminished and communities will suffer.

The plan
This is a high priority concern. Wisconsin Conservation Voters is poised to lead a coalition of electoral and issue groups to run a campaign to ensure these amendments fail. We will leverage all of our resources and talk to voters at the doors, by mail, through digital ads, and more.

It’s imperative we stop this threat. It’s yet another egregious attack on the governor’s ability to function for the people of Wisconsin. This summer, we’ll be working hard to ensure voters aren’t fooled and that they reject these terrible amendments.
