1997 WISCONSIN ACT 35
An Act relating to: repealing, consolidating, renumbering, amending and revising various provisions of the statutes for the purpose of correcting errors, supplying omissions, correcting and clarifying references, eliminating defects, anachronisms, conflicts, ambiguities and obsolete provisions, deleting, replacing or otherwise modifying language which discriminates on the basis of sex, reconciling conflicts and repelling unintended repeals (Revisor's Correction Bill).
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
5.02 (24) "State superintendent" means the state superintendent of public instruction.
Note: 1995 Wis. Act 27
, section 9145
(1), unintentionally changed the reference to the "state superintendent of public instruction" in this provision to "secretary of education". 1995 Wis. Act 219
was intended to return this provision to its pre-Act 27 status but only "state superintendent" was reinserted.
Note: There is no conflict of substance.
Note: 1995 Wis. Act 313
divided s. 6.24 (4) (a) into pars. (a) and (c) and created a new par. (b). Section 6.24 (4) already contained a par. (b).
