Governor Evers Signs Rep. Taylor Bills Into Law
MADISON—Today, Representative Chris Taylor (D-Madison) joined Governor Tony Evers and Representative Ron Tusler, for the signing of Assembly Bills 58 and 59 into law. Representatives Tusler and Taylor were co-authors of the two bills.
Assembly Bill 58 allows for consenting parties involved in litigation to share certain documents in court actions via email. Assembly Bill 59 allows for claims against state officers, employees, or agents to be served to the Attorney General in person in addition to being submitted via certified mail.
Rep. Taylor issued the following statement:
“Even in this hyper partisan environment, I have worked to find areas of consensus among my colleagues in the state Assembly. These bills are common sense measures to update standard practices in the legal profession which I’m proud to say the entire legislature supported.
Though things in the legislature have ground to a halt on a number of critical proposals the people of this state want, I continue to work for the people to find areas of common ground and to pass bipartisan legislation. I thank Representative Tusler for working with me on these bills.”
Rep. Taylor previously co-authored another bipartisan bill that was signed into law earlier this session which prohibits companies from deducting moving expenses from their state tax liability when moving jobs out of Wisconsin.
