Governor Signs Energy Trespass Bill

Governor Evers signed into law a bipartisan bill that makes it a felony to trespass or damage oil or gas pipelines (see EnergyOnWI News, October 2019).  The bill was supported by labor unions, utilities, the Chamber of Commerce, and some trade groups. It was opposed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin, some tribes, and environmental organizations. LaCrosseTribune
