21st Century Transportation

Demand for transportation alternatives is skyrocketing, and our roads and bridges are crumbling. Yet instead of meeting our changing transportation needs, our state budget continues to funnel billions of dollars into shortsighted new highway projects.
 

Issue | Budget, Tax

Citizen Budget Watch

When information on the effectiveness of taxpayer funded programs is hidden, the public is denied its stake in the decision making process. We can’t afford to spend money on subsidy programs that don’t work, don’t give us a good return on our investment, or keep critical information hidden from us.

Consumer Protection

WISPIRG’s consumer program works to alert the public to hidden dangers and scams and to ban anti-consumer practices and unsafe products.

Issue | Democracy

Democracy For The People

Stanching the flow of special interest money in our elections.

Label GMO Foods

While the U.S. remains the only industrialized country without mandatory GMO labeling, some major grocery stores, like Whole Foods, have committed to label foods containing genetically modified ingredients. But labeling GMO foods shouldn’t be the exception—it should be the law.

Issue | Health Care

Making Health Care Work

Now the fight for health care reform is in Madison, and so are the health care industry’s lobbyists. At stake is how we set up a new insurance marketplace in Wisconsin — the single biggest tool we have to clean up health care.

Reining in Wall Street

We’re fighting for a financial regulatory system that guarantees consumers and taxpayers are protected from the predatory practices at the heart of this problem.

Issue | Safe Energy

Saving Energy, Saving Money

In Wisconsin and across the country, we have enormous potential to save energy in homes and businesses.

Issue

Stop Highway Boondoggles

More and more of us are moving off the roads. Yet we’re still spending billions to expand roads and build new highways every year, even as other needs — from expanding public transportation to critical bridge repairs — go unmet. Across the country there are countless proposed highway projects that are not just expensive — they’re outright boondoggles. We need your help to stop them.
