Public Hearing Held on Campaign Finance Bill

The Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections held a public hearing on November 17 on Assembly Bill 104 (AB 104), which I authored with Rep. Dick Spanbauer (R-Oshkosh). AB 104 would require the same information on campaign finance reports for out-of-state registrants as in-state registrants. Under current law, if a political action group or other registrant does not maintain an office or street address in Wisconsin, that registrant has reduced reporting requirements. AB 104 would bring greater disclosure and heightened uniform standards to out-of-state groups involved in Wisconsin elections.
