Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a fraternal benefit society may provide insurance benefits
to its members and employees. To be considered a fraternal benefit society, an
organization must, among other requirements, have a lodge system, and the local
lodges must meet at least monthly. This bill changes the frequency with which the
local lodges must meet to at least once every three months.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
