Welcome to our website dedicated to Regulatory Reform in Wisconsin. Governor Scott Walker and the leadership in the State Assembly are committed to a top to bottom review of the 1,768 chapters in the Wisconsin Administrative Code containing countless rules we all deal with on a daily basis. If you are a small business person, local government, manufacturer, or just an individual resident of Wisconsin you are affected by these 11,764 pages of rules.
On this website you can find out how we plan on doing this review, what the rules actually say and notices of public hearings that will be taking place dealing with specific rules. This is a huge undertaking so this site will be changing and adding more information as we go forward.
we launched this project during the 101st Legislative Session,
we knew it was going to be a long process, and we’ve made good progress.
Throughout this session, legislators
reviewed more than 300 chapters through the “Right the Rules” process. This
review included over 100 meetings/hearings from 24 Assembly committees and 7
Assembly members brought forward and passed 13 bills that
change or eliminate a total of 85 different chapters. 4 of those bills have been signed into law,
and 8 are waiting to be signed by Governor Walker. Each of these bills
eliminates government red tape in a variety of subject areas making the
Administrative Code friendlier for the businesses and citizens of Wisconsin.
We still want to hear from you. If there is a rule or regulation that you find problematic let us know. This site gives you the ability to put in writing your specific concerns and e-mail those concerns to my office and we will pass those concerns on to the committee dealing with that rule.
We plan on continuing to update this website as we go
forward so you will know how many of the 1,768 chapters in the administrative
code have been dealt with, when hearings are, and keep track of any legislation
that comes forward.
Moving forward into the next session, it is our hope that the next Assembly
Co-Chair for JCRAR is dedicated to continuing the Right the Rules project, working
to reduce the burden that these regulations create.
