Support SB 46: Expand Outdoor Opportunities for Disabled Veterans and Purple Heart Recipients

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters urges you to support SB 46, which is before the full Senate on Tuesday, May 2.

Wisconsin currently honors the sacrifice of our resident disabled veterans by offering reduced rates for fishing and hunting licenses. In addition, Wisconsin exempts anyone in active service with the U.S. Armed Forces from the current cumulative preference system for awarding wild turkey tags when there are more requests than those available. SB 46 would allow disabled veterans and recipients of the Purple Heart to qualify for the exemption from the cumulative preference system when seeking wild turkey licenses and tags so they can take advantage of Wisconsin’s sporting heritage and opportunities.

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to electing conservation leaders, holding decision makers accountable, and encouraging lawmakers to champion conservation policies that effectively protect Wisconsin’s natural resources and public health.
