This week, the Wisconsin Assembly passed a measure that will greatly enhance the ability of commercial real estate practitioners develop property in Wisconsin. This bill has been one that our members spoke with legislators about during the visits to Madison. Click HERE for the issues brief.
Early next week, this bill will go to the Senate and we need you to call your legislator to tell them to support SB600.

We encourage your support of SB600 to support changes to wetlands regulations in Wisconsin that will ease development while still protecting Wisconsin wetlands. We acknowledge that wetlands play a critical role in our environment, and believe that the proposed legislation will continue to protect the environment while aligning more responsibly, federal regulations.
As our state tries to compete both nationally and globally for economic development opportunities, we need to revamp our wetland regulations to focus on preserving high-quality wetlands, and providing more flexibility for mitigating disturbances to lower quality wetlands to accommodate new economic development opportunities.
Thank you for your support!
