Public Hearing January 31 on Prohibiting BCPL from Making Loans to Local Governments 

The Senate Committee on Government Operations, Technology, and Consumer Protection is holding a public hearing on SB 713, on Wednesday, January 31 at 9:30.  The bill, which the League opposes, eliminates the authority of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands (BCPL) to make state trust fund loans to local governments.  

The hearing will be in room 201 Southeast in the State Capitol.  

Read the joint memo that the League and Wisconsin Towns Association distributed to legislators last month urging them not to sign on to the bill, here

Call to Action:  Local officials are urged to attend the hearing or communicate to committee members your opposition to SB 713.  Committee member emails are pasted below:
