        Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance

        Your Association is a member of The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance (WTA)which has merged with a Milwaukee group and is now called the WISCONSIN POLICY FORUM (WPF) "a non profit, non partisan, independently funded organization dedicated to improving Wisconsin Government through education"

        The Wisconsin Policy Forum is highlighting School Financing. A new bipartisan commission headed by Senator Luther Olsen (Ripon) and Door County's own Representative Joel Kitchens will explore the distribution of state tax dollars to K-12 schools.

        WPF reports that Wisconsin ranks highly amoung the states on both "adequacy and equity" of school funding. They also point out that we rate poorly in transparency because of years of layering on new programs. As a result voters, legislators and school board members have a hard time understanding the system. More at link to Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance

      New Law Protects the Value of Waterfront Property in Wisconsin

      2011 WI Act 167 is a big victory for waterfront property owners in Wisconsin. This new law:

    • Eliminates the DNR pier registration requirement.
    • Guarantees all riparian owners have a right to place a pier.
