Representative Nass. Referred to Committee on Judiciary and Labor.
SB2,1,3 1An Act to repeal 14.38 (10) (a) and 35.095 (3) (b); and to amend 13.92 (1) (b)
24., 35.095 (1) (b), 35.095 (2) (b), 35.095 (3) (a), 35.095 (3) (c) and 991.11 of the
3statutes; relating to: the publication and effective dates of acts.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Currently, when a bill is enacted, either by action of the governor or by
overriding the governor's veto, the bill is deposited in the office of the secretary of
state, who sets a date of publication that must be within ten working days of the date
of enactment. No later than the next working day after deposit of an act with the
secretary of state, the secretary notifies the Legislative Reference Bureau (LRB) of
the date of publication. LRB is directed by law to publish each act within ten working
days of its date of enactment. The statutes require acts to be printed. Although the
statutes do not specifically require electronic publication, they do not preclude it.
Separately, within ten days after the date of publication of each act, the secretary of
state publishes in the official state newspaper a notice identifying the act together
with its date of publication and information concerning how copies may be obtained.
Currently, every act that does not expressly prescribe the time when it takes effect
becomes effective on the day after its date of publication as designated by the
secretary of state.
This bill provides that the date of publication of each act is the day after the date
of enactment. The bill directs LRB to publish each act on that date. Under the bill,
each act that does not expressly prescribe the time when it takes effect becomes
effective on the day after its date of publication as prescribed in the bill. The bill does

not affect the current practices of printing copies of acts and of publishing notices
that acts have been enacted and advising how copies may be obtained.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
