Wisconsin Regulatory Reform - 2013

Is your business highly regulated by state government? Do you deal with administrative rules that are duplicative, arbitrary, or wasteful? Or, do you rely upon administrative rules that are an absolute necessity for your business? Wisconsin is in the midst of a major regulatory reform effort that may affect you and your business, and there is a small window of opportunity to help identify administrative rules that you would like to see repealed, changed or modified, or remain untouched.


Governor Walker recently released his 2013 Wisconsin Regulatory Review Report. The report is the result of a year-long effort by Wisconsin State Agencies to identify “rules hindering economic growth.” The report identifies 307 administrative rule changes in 218 chapters of rules. In order to accomplish these changes, legislation or further rulemaking will be required.


In addition to the report issued by the governor, the Wisconsin State Assembly has announced a top-to-bottom review of ALL administrative rule chapters. Through this effort, known as “Right the Rules,” the Assembly hopes to identify more administrative rules for repeal and or modification. Each and every rule chapter has been assigned to an Assembly committee for review, and the committees are expected to make their rules modification recommendations as early as March 2013.

Many businesses are regulated by state government through administrative rules. Whether there is a rule that you love, or one you hate, NOW IS THE TIME to have an impact on how those rules affect your business.

Our Government Relations Practice Group is in a very unique position to help shape the outcome of this Administrative Rules Review. Contact Cari Anne Renlund or Jordan Lamb to learn what we can do to help you shape the rules that apply to your business.

One of the best features about our website articles and blog entries is that they are timely—you get up-to-date information on the law as it exists at the time. The downside is that the law changes, but our older entries don't. That means we can't guarantee you are getting the most current law when reading through past entries.

Please don't take these articles and blog entries and rely on them as legal advice. Give us a call instead, for specific and pointed advice for your particular situation. Note that contacting us does not create an attorney-client relationship, unless you are accepted as a client of the firm.
