Conservation Voters Endorses Josh Kaul for Attorney General

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters endorses Josh Kaul for Attorney General. “We are endorsing Josh Kaul early to make it abundantly clear that conservation voters across the state are already energized and engaged in this crucial race,” Executive Director Kerry Schumann said. “This election will have significant impacts on Wisconsin’s environment.” Kaul’s commitment to conservation and the importance of electing an attorney general who cares about Wisconsin’s air, land, water, and public health earned him this early endorsement for the Nov. 6 general election. Kaul provides a stark contrast to Brad Schimel who implemented a radical anti-conservation agenda as attorney general. Under Schimel, enforcement of environmental laws has plummeted. He booted environmental attorneys from the Department of Justice. He sued the federal government about the Clean Water Rule and the Clean Power Plan. “Our current attorney general has consistently put the interests of polluters ahead of the interests of Wisconsinites,” Kaul said. “He’s overseen a substantial drop in the amount of fines collected from polluters, and he sued to challenge the Clean Power Plan – an effort to cut carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.”
