                           ACTION ALERT

**********************************************************************

DATE   : October 15, 2003
SUBJECT: Wisconsin anti-nudity legislation
TO     : All Naturists

Dear Naturist,

The Naturist Action Committee has identified an important situation in Wisconsin. NAC is alerting you to that situation and is asking for your immediate action.

A legislative bill will be introduced later today in the Wisconsin Assembly seeking to outlaw nudity on all land that is owned, managed, supervised, or controlled by any state agency. The bill targets Mazo Beach specifically.

ASSEMBLY BILL 574

AB 574 will be introduced by Rep. Daniel LeMahieu (R-Oostburg). In addition to outlawing nudity on public lands across the state, the bill would establish a state law that "prohibits a person from parking in any lot that is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Natural Resources and that is along Conservatory Drive in the town of Mazomanie."

WHAT IS NAC DOING?

The Naturist Action Committee is working with local naturist groups and others, including allies in the state legislature, to defeat AB 574. NAC has retained a professional legislative lobbyist to assist its efforts.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

AB 574 has been assigned to the Assembly Committee on Tourism. Since the bill won't be officially introduced until later today, no date has been set for the bill to be considered in committee. However, NAC believes the Assembly's Republican leadership will seek to catch the bill's opponents off guard, and AB 574 will likely be scheduled for an immediate hearing.


NAC IS ASKING YOU TO TAKE ACTION!

The Naturist Action Committee asks all naturists and other concerned citizens to contact members of the Assembly Committee on Tourism and express opposition to AB 574. Contacts from Wisconsin residents are most important to state lawmakers, of course, but since this is the Tourism Committee, its members should certainly be expected to understand the value of comments from those who live outside the state.

A complete list of lawmakers on the committee is available on the web site of the Naturist Action Committee, along with guidelines and suggestions from NAC on how to make your contact and what to say.
