Landmark Property Rights Reform Headed to Governor Walker’s Desk
MADISON, WI – Americans for Prosperity – Wisconsin today praised the state legislature for passing the Homeowners Bill of Rights sending the measure to Governor Scott Walker’s desk for his signature. A top priority for AFP-WI activists, the legislation will eliminate barriers for Wisconsin families to buy and own a home while reining state government’s authority to infringe on property rights.
Americans for Prosperity State Director Eric Bott made the following statement:
“Today is a banner day for property rights in the state of Wisconsin. After years of the courts bungling this issue, lawmakers stepped up and delivered a landmark reform bill to protect the property rights of Wisconsinites from government overreach. This legislation means that more Wisconsin families will be able to realize their American Dream by buying and owning property. The days of heavy-handed government bureaucrats arbitrarily denying permits and harassing homeowners who want to develop their property are numbered. AFP-WI extends a special thanks to members of the legislature for removing one troubling provision that could have resulted in higher property taxes and cronyism.”
