assembly-wiMADISON - We need you to make a call or send an email today!

The Assembly Committee on Local Government had a public hearing yesterday morning to consider Assembly Bill 245, a bill related to shared revenue that contains an outrageous and unconstitutional provision that would ban local advisory referendums. This bill is being fast-tracked.

Here’s my testimony against it: Do Not Muffle Our Voices.

Now I need you to contact the following today (updated):

 

1) Call or email Assembly Committee Chair Todd Novak today and demand that this provision be stripped from this bill. His phone number is (608) 237-9151. His email is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
2) Contact your own state legislators (corrected link) and demand that they support stripping this provision from this bill.
3) Call Speaker Vos and Majority Leader LeMahieu. They just said, "We believe the public will support" their bill (AB245). Let them know that the public does NOT support this bill’s attack on local controls especially the ban on local advisory referendums! Vos: (608) 237-9163. LeMahieu: (608) 266-2056.

>>Tell them: Don’t you dare take away our freedom to speak, assemble, and petition the government! Don’t you dare take away our local control!

Thanks for your concern, and your activism, today.
