Legislative Proposals Affect Land Information Program Funding

By Jim Lacy, Wisconsin State Cartographer’s Office, October 10, 2011

Two different bills recently introduced into the Wisconsin legislature affect the funding of the Wisconsin Land Information Program (WLIP)— a long-standing program used by counties to support local land information activities. Senate Bill 225 and Assembly Bill 303 are companion bills aimed at making significant changes to Wisconsin’s comprehensive planning law. Among the various changes proposed, both bills would de-fund $2 million in yearly comprehensive planning program grants available to local governments in Wisconsin. If passed as currently written, the $2 million would be permanently lapsed from the WLIP, and transferred to the state’s general fund.
