JCRAR Assembly Republican Response to Recent WEC Meetings

Madison – Today Republican Assembly Members of the Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules (JCRAR) issued the following statement on the Wisconsin Elections Commission’s (WEC) response to the Committee’s motion requiring the promulgation of administrative rules on drop boxes and ballot curing:

“While WEC appears to be moving toward partial compliance with JCRAR’s January 10th motion, it appears to have no interest in submitting its policies on drop boxes to the Legislature. If WEC submits a rule to the Legislature addressing ballot curing, we are fully prepared to suspend it if we and our legislative colleagues deem it necessary. Unfortunately, it appears WEC has no interest in
complying with JCRAR’s motion requiring them to submit their drop box policies to the Legislature. If WEC does not change course, it will be a blatant violation of the law and the Legislature’s oversight, and we will be discussing options with our colleagues to compel WEC to follow the law.”
