Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, the governor appoints members of the Government
Accountability Board (board) from nominations submitted by the board's candidate
committee. Current law requires the candidate committee to submit at least two
nominations to fill one vacancy on the board, three nominations to fill two vacancies,
five nominations to fill three vacancies, six nominations to fill four vacancies, and
seven nominations to fill five vacancies on the board. This bill doubles the number
of nominations the candidate committee must submit to the governor.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
