Wisconsin want politics out of hunting, fishing, land and water issues

<snip>

And when it comes to political involvement in conservation, 83% said hunting, fishing, land and water matters should go through the Wisconsin Conservation Congress process before the legislature can act on them.

And as they have repeatedly over the last 15 years, voters at the spring hearings rejected political involvement in conservation issues.

This year's question asked: "Would you support legislation requiring the Conservation Congress process of public input on all matters concerning conservation, hunting, fishing, trapping, habitat, wildlife, land and water issues to take place before a law on these matters can be acted on by the legislature?"

The tally was not unanimous, but about as close as you can get in a public vote: 3,794 for, 561 against.

<end snip>


The Conservation Congress is an "advisory" organization, with no political strings.
