Last Chance to Keep Shoreland Zoning Strong

A VETO BY THE GOVERNOR IS THE LAST CHANCE TO KEEP SHORELAND ZONING STRONG

Legislature passes budget with shoreland zoning changes intact – counties stand to lose local control of zoning as lake management tool


The drastic cuts to a county’s ability to use shoreland zoning as a lake management tool tailored to its own waters sailed through the Joint Finance Committee and both houses of the Wisconsin Legislature. With the Assembly’s vote to pass the budget bill yesterday, this proposal will become law unless Governor Walker uses his line-item veto power to remove it when he signs the bill – most likely tomorrow, Friday July 10!
