The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
AB846,1 3Section 1. 7.31 (5) of the statutes, as affected by 2015 Wisconsin Act 118,
4section 266, is amended to read:
AB846,1,95 7.31 (5) The commission shall conduct regular training programs to ensure
6that individuals who are certified by the commission under this section are
7knowledgeable concerning their authority and responsibilities. The commission
8shall pay all costs required to conduct the training programs from the appropriation
9under s. 20.511 20.510 (1) (bm).

Note: Inserts correct cross-reference. Section 20.511 (1) (bm) was renumbered to
s. 20.510 (1) (bm) by 2015 Wis. Act 118.
AB846,2 1Section 2. The treatment of 7.315 (1) (b) 1. of the statutes by 2015 Wisconsin
2Act 229
is not repealed by 2015 Wisconsin Act 261. Both treatments stand.
Note: There is no conflict of substance. As merged by the legislative reference
bureau, s. 7.315 (1) (b) 1. reads:
1. Each inspector other than a chief inspector and each special voting deputy
appointed under s. 6.875 shall view or attend at least one training program every 2 years
during the period beginning on January 1 of each even-numbered year and ending on
December 31 of the following year. Except as provided in subd. 2., no individual may serve
as an inspector, other than a chief inspector, or as a special voting deputy under s. 6.875
at any election unless the individual has completed training for that election provided by
the municipal clerk pursuant to rules promulgated under par. (a) within 2 years of the
date of the election.
AB846,3 3Section 3. The treatment of 7.315 (1) (b) 2. of the statutes by 2015 Wisconsin
4Act 229
is not repealed by 2015 Wisconsin Act 261. Both treatments stand.
Note: There is no conflict of substance. As merged by the legislative reference
bureau, s. 7.315 (1) (b) 2. reads:
2. Only when an individual who has received training under subd. 1. is unavailable
to perform his or her election duties due to sickness, injury, or other unforeseen
occurrence may an individual who has not received training under subd. 1. be appointed
to serve as an inspector, other than chief inspector, or a special voting deputy. The
appointment of an individual to serve under this subdivision shall be for a specific election
and no individual may be appointed under this subdivision more than one time in a
2-year period beginning on January 1 of each even-numbered year and ending on
December 31 of the following year.
AB846,4 5Section 4. 11.0102 (3) (j) of the statutes, as created by 2015 Wisconsin Act 117,
6is amended to read:
AB846,3,27 11.0102 (3) (j) Determine whether each report or statement required to be filed
8under this chapter has been filed in the form and by the time prescribed by law, and
9whether it conforms on its face to the requirements of this chapter. The officer shall
10immediately send to any committee that is delinquent in filing, or that has filed
11otherwise than in the proper form, a notice that the committee has failed to comply
12with this chapter. Whenever a candidate committee has appointed an individual

1other than the candidate as campaign treasurer, the commission officer shall send
2the notice to both the candidate and the treasurer of the candidate committee.
Note: Inserts the correct term. Section 11.0102 (3) (intro.) requires “each filing
officer, other than the commission" to take the actions under sub. (3) (a) to (j) and creates
no obligations for the ethics commission. Section 11.0102 (3) (j), as created by 2015 Wis.
Act 117
, was derived from and is nearly identical to the previously existing s. 11.22 (9),
which placed the obligation in the 3rd sentence to send the notice on the filing officer.

Section 15.61 (3) was renumbered from s. 15.60 (6) by Act 118. Section 15.60 related to
the creation and membership of the Government Accountability Board. Section 15.61
relates to the creation and membership of the Elections Commission.
AB846,6 8Section 6. 16.855 (22) of the statutes, as affected by 2015 Wisconsin Act 55,
9is amended to read:

15under sub. (12m) or (24), is at least $50,000, and the building commission elects to

and 350.12 (3h) (ag) 1. a., as affected by 2015 Wis. Act 89.
AB846,8 7Section 8. The treatment of 29.024 (7) of the statutes by 2015 Wisconsin Act
889
is not repealed by 2015 Wisconsin Act 222. Both treatments stand.
Note: There is no conflict of substance. As merged by the legislative reference
bureau, s. 29.024 (7) reads:

whom the license, permit, certificate, or card was issued may apply to the department for
