A Wisconsin Green Amendment is proposed.

In 2024, Representative Darrin Madison and Senator Mark Spreitzer proposed that a Wisconsin Green Amendment be added to the state’s constitution.  

The WI Green Amendment, as proposed, would be added to the state constitution’s Declaration of Rights (Article 1), and would read:

Section 27. The people, including future generations, have the right to a clean, safe, and healthy natural environment, including pure water, clean air, healthy soils, self-sustaining ecosystems, and a safe and stable climate, and to the preservation of the natural, cultural, scenic, and healthful qualities of the environment.
