MADISON - Wisconsin Conservation Voters urges you to support LRB 0892, which is currently circulating for co-sponsorship.

Lead poisoning, especially in young children, can lead to profound and permanent health problems, including damage to brain development. Young children in childcare centers – and even in their own homes – can be exposed to lead-contaminated water without their parents’ knowledge. LRB 0892 would help to incentivize removing lead hazards in homes by creating a non-refundable income tax credit of up to $1500 to permanently eliminate a lead hazard in a dwelling.

Conservation NOW (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.
