capitol-nightTuesday’s State Senate calendar contains several bills that need time for proper debate, amendments to address significant concerns raised by the public, and bills that were sold as one thing and ended up being very different.

metallic-sulfide-mining-runoffThe Wisconsin State Senate will vote Tuesday on a Constitutional Convention, protecting water quality, and more. Get involved and call your own Senator.


MADISON - The Wisconsin State Senate will vote Tuesday on a reckless proposal to convene a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of adding a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Amending the U.S. Constitution is a radical tactic that puts at risk every citizen right that is currently protected in the Constitution.

miningIf you haven’t called your State Senator about this yet, now is the time to do it! Tell her/him that a Constitutional Convention to pass a balanced federal budget is a reckless proposal, and it should be rejected.

The State Senate will also be voting on AB 499, which protects water quality in Wisconsin. Current law prohibits the Department of Natural Resources from issuing a permit for sulfide ore mining until it determines that such an operation can exist without resulting in groundwater or surface water pollution or the release of heavy metals. AB 499 would repeal this prohibition.

Contact your State Senator and urge her/him to vote NO on AB 499 to protect our water quality.

Both of these proposals have already been passed by the State Assembly. The Constitutional Convention proposals do not even need to be signed by the Governor. Act now to protect our citizen rights and our water quality in Wisconsin.

For contact information for your own Senator, click here and enter your address above Find Your Legislators, near the little map of Wisconsin.  

You may also wish to join a gathering of people opposed to the Constitutional Convention at 9AM tomorrow at the State Capitol.
