Two bills have been introduced in the legislature: AB303 and SB288. But the committees in the two chambers have not scheduled hearings. And the bills cannot be considered by the full bodies in the Assembly and Senate until they have passed out of committee.
And that's where we come in. We are urging the committee chairs to schedule hearings and to vote the measures out to the whole body. So we are sending postcards to them to nudge them along. (This year the Assembly bill has FOUR Republican co-sponsors, a record!). Please help us by coming in to our office to write and send a few postcards!WHENSeptember 25, 2019 at 5pmWHEREGrassroots North Shore Office

Nancy Kaplan posted about gerrymander signup on Facebook 2017-02-10 14:37:05 -0600I signed up to insist that the WI legislature draw new district maps in a nonpartisan way. Join me & other activists.
If we want the court-ordered redistricting process to end partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin, we will have to orchestrate a public outcry about the secretive and hyper-partisan way district lines were drawn in 2011 (the map the court found to be unconstitutional).
We will have to insist—loudly and publicly and as often as possible—that the new maps must be drawn in an inclusive and transparent way, with bipartisan and nonpartisan input and with public hearings held in locations around the state so as many citizens as possible can participate and be heard.
Do your part and sign up to work to end partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin NOW.Sign up
Nancy Kaplan commented on Where and When to Vote Early 2016-03-22 17:04:14 -0500Debbie Kujawski is absolutely right. The goal of limiting early voting to regular business hours is to suppress voting. But of course the actual excuse was to control costs of staffing offices after hours and on weekends.
Nancy Kaplan commented on Even MORE Bogus "Tax Relief" 2013-12-27 12:12:57 -0600The actual data is in: the property taxes on my house INCREASED by 7.5%. Anyone else want to chime in?
