New corporation registered  by the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters for the purposes of making independent expenditures in the recall elections.

Before registering this corporation, the League had already filed oath of independent disbursements for the recall under the name of it's long-standing PAC.

It supported one Democratic incumbent, Senator Jim Holperin of the 12th Senate District, and three Democratic challengers in the recall elections in districts 8, 10 and 32.

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC as a corporation making independent disbursements.
