MADISON – Wisconsin Conservation Voters released its review of the legislative session the “2019-20 Conservation Scorecard” today.
In the scorecard, you’ll find our assessment of how priorities like safe, clean drinking water were attacked and undermined by legislative leadership headed by Speaker Robin Vos, who put polluters and their priorities over the people of Wisconsin and the protection of your health and environment.
“This session went by with very little meaningful pro-conservation legislation.” Government Affairs Director Jennifer Giegerich said. “Despite overwhelming public support, the legislature under Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald showed no sense of urgency and no commitment to adopting strong policies and meaningful solutions to the state’s most pressing conservation issues.”
The scorecard also spotlights the fight for Wisconsin’s natural resources at the State Capitol; tells the story of priority legislation, including who voted for and against it; and features this year’s Conservation Honor Roll and Conservation Dishonor Roll.
