Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, an agency must prepare a statement of the scope of any
administrative rule that it plans to promulgate that contains certain information
about the agency's proposal to promulgate the rule. This bill provides for the
expiration of a statement of scope 30 months after the date on which the statement
is published in the Wisconsin Administrative Register.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
