When the iron mining bill failed to pass last March, we were happy to see that horrible piece of legislation die. But we also figured that wasn’t the end of Wisconsin’s mining fight. We were right.
Now that the new legislative session has started, mining is again a hot topic.
Sign this petition to tell legislators that any mining legislation cannot rollback environmental protections.
Last session’s bad mining bill was written by and for mining companies and was environmentally destructive. This time around, legislators profess that they want a mining bill that protects our health and environment, but even their best efforts at revising the bill have come up devastatingly short of maintaining strong environmental protections. Let’s hold them accountable to their campaign statements and make sure environmental protection isn’t just an empty promise when it comes to mining.
Tell legislators we don’t want to sacrifice our health, air, water and special places for mining companies — keep any potential mining legislation strong and protective! Sign the petition TODAY
