Last Chance to Act on the Open-Pit Mining Bill!

To be delivered to The Wisconsin State Senate

Petition Statement

I am writing to ask you to oppose the open-pit mining bill. By now, I am sure you have heard of the bill's many shortcomings, including:

*Explicitly allowing groundwater, the source of most Wisconsinites' drinking water, to be polluted.
*Allowing our most sensitive wetlands to be filled in with mining waste and other materials.
*Capping the amount of money that the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) can collect from a mining company for reviewing their permit.
*Denying citizens the certainty of contested case hearings.

This bill is unconscionably extreme and it is undeniably wrong for Wisconsin. Please vote NO on the open-pit mining bill
There are currently 8,346 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Senate has put the worst imaginable version of the open-pit mining bill (AB 426) on the fast track. It rolls back environmental protections, quiets the voice of citizens, and forces tax payers to pay for the mining company costs. We may have just days to stop it. The good news is that we are well positioned to do just that. Ask your Senator to oppose the open-pit mining bill TODAY!
