Week of December 2, 2013
2013 – 2014 Legislative Session
This Week’s Notices:
  • Support LRB 2792: Protecting Public Health and the Environment in Administrative Rules

Support LRB 2792:  Protecting Public Health and the Environment in Administrate Rules
Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters urges you to support LRB 2792, which is currently circulating for co-sponsorship. 
When evaluating proposed administrative rules, it is important that the state not only weigh the economic costs of implementing new rules, it should also evaluate how the proposed rules will affect the quality of life for our families and our communities.  LRB 2792 would restore the criteria of “impact to public health and the environment” when evaluating proposed administrative rules, which was eliminated in January 2011 Special Session Act 21.

Conservation NOW 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 Conservation NOW, including legislative staff, conservation voters, and media. All of these issues are tracked on our website. Issues in the Conservation NOW may appear in the Conservation Scorecard, to be released in the summer of 2014.
