NOTICE OF REFERENDUM ELECTION NOVEMBER 7, 2006

       NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that at an election to be held in the several towns, villages, wards and election districts in the County of Dane, on Tuesday, November 7, 2006, the following questions will be submitted to a vote of the people pursuant to law:

Question 1.
"Should the need for additional high-voltage transmission lines in Dane County be verified by an independent study prior to proposed construction?"
EXPLANATION

       The American Transmission Company has asked the Wisconsin Public Service Commission to approve its request to construct new high-voltage power lines in Dane County. These lines have the potential to affect residences, businesses, farms and the environment in Dane County.

       A "yes" vote means that, before the lines may be built, there should be an independent study to determine whether the lines are necessary.

       A "no" vote means that there should not be an independent study before the lines are built.

Question 2.
"Should the Wisconsin Legislature establish a plan that will reduce health care costs by at least 15 percent and guarantee access to universal, affordable health care coverage for all Wisconsin individuals and families by 2008?"
EXPLANATION

       It is estimated that 32,000 Dane County residents lack basic health insurance, and enrollment in publicly supported health insurance programs has risen. Costs related to health care have also increased in the last several years.

       A "yes" vote means the Legislature should establish a plan that will reduce health care costs by at least 15 percent and guarantee access to universal, affordable health care coverage for all Wisconsin individuals and families by 2008.

       A "no" vote means the Legislature should not establish a plan that will reduce health care costs by at least 15 percent and guarantee access to universal, affordable health care coverage for all Wisconsin individuals and families by 2008.

Done in the County of Dane
This 11th day of October, 2006
