emergency_rules EmR1206 EmR1206 — The State of Wisconsin Department of Justice ("DOJ") proposes an order to repeal and re-create Chapter Jus 17 and Chapter Jus 18, relating to licenses authorizing persons to carry concealed weapons; concealed carry certification cards for qualified former federal law enforcement officers; and the certification of firearms safety and training instructors.
Governor Walker approved the final draft emergency rules on March 15, 2012. Attorney General Van Hollen signed an order approving the final emergency rules on March 15, 2012, and the emergency rules were published in the Wisconsin State Journal on March 21, 2012.
The statement of scope for these emergency rules was approved by Governor Walker on February 15, 2012, published in Administrative Register, No. 674, on February 29, 2012, and approved by Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen on March 12, 2012.
Finding of Emergency
Under section 101 of 2011 Wis. Act 35, DOJ has been statutorily required to receive and process concealed carry license applications and to issue or deny licenses since November 1, 2011. The Legislature has thus determined that the public welfare requires the licensing system commenced on that date to remain continuously in effect. Emergency rules governing the licensing process were adopted on October 25, 2011, and have been in effect since November 1, 2011.
On November 7, 2011, JCRAR suspended certain portions of the emergency rules adopted on October 25, 2011. Since that time, DOJ has implemented concealed carry licensing without enforcing the suspended provisions. DOJ is also in the process of developing proposed permanent rules that do not include the substance of any of the provisions in the emergency rules that were suspended by JCRAR.
Under Wis. Stat. s. 227.26 (2) (i), if a bill supporting JCRAR's suspension action of November 7, 2011, is not enacted into law by the end of the current legislative session on March 15, 2012, then the suspension would be lifted and the original version of the emergency rules — including the previously suspended portions — would go back into legal effect. At that point, the emergency rules in effect would be inconsistent both with the emergency rules as they have been administered by DOJ since November 7, 2011, and with the proposed permanent rules, the scope of which has already been approved by the Governor and the Attorney General. Any such lack of continuity in the operation of DOJ's concealed carry rules would be confusing and disruptive both for permit applicants and for DOJ staff administering the concealed carry permit program.
In order to prevent such a discontinuity in the operation of the concealed carry rules, it is necessary to re-promulgate the existing emergency rules in their entirety, with the exception of the portions that were suspended by JCRAR on November 7, 2011. Only if DOJ utilizes the emergency rulemaking procedures of s. 227.24, Stats., can the revised emergency rules be promulgated and in effect in time to prevent discontinuity in the operation of the existing rules. The public welfare thus necessitates that the rules proposed here be promulgated as emergency rules under s. 227.24, Stats.

emergency_rules EmR1045 1. EmR1045 (DNR # IS-07-11(E)) — Rule to repeal section NR 40.02 (28m), to amend section NR 40.04 (3m), and to repeal and recreate section NR 40.07 (8), (all as created by Natural Resource Board emergency order EmR1039, DNR # IS-49-10(E)), relating to the identification, classification and control of invasive species.
Exemption from Finding of Emergency
Section 227.24 (1) (a), Stats., authorizes state agencies to promulgate a rule as an emergency rule without complying with the notice, hearing and publication requirements under Ch. 227, Stats., if preservation of the public peace, health, safety or welfare necessitates putting the rule into effect prior to the time it would take effect if the agency complied with the procedures. However, s. 23.22 (2t) (a), Stats., authorizes the department to promulgate emergency rules to identify, classify, or control an invasive species without having to provide evidence that an emergency rule is necessary for the preservation of public peace, health, safety, or welfare or to provide a finding of emergency. In addition, such emergency rules may remain in effect until whichever of the following occurs first: the first day of the 25th month beginning after the effective date of the emergency rule, the effective date of the repeal of the emergency rule, or the date on which the permanent rule identifying, classifying, or controlling the invasive species, promulgated under s. 23.22 (2) (b) 6., Stats., takes effect.

emergency_rules EmR1205 2. EmR1205 (DNR # CF-26-11(E)) — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources proposes an emergency order to revise Chapter NR 64, All-Terrain Vehicles, as follows: to renumber section NR 64.14 (9) (d); to amend section NR 64.12 (7) (a) and section NR 64.14 (9) (a) 1.; and to create sections NR 64.02 (9m), NR 64.02 (15), NR 64.12 (7) (am), NR 64.14 (2r) (a) and (b), and NR 64.14 (9) (d), relating to the all-terrain vehicle grant programs and trail-route combinations.
This emergency rule was approved by the governor on April 26, 2012.
The statement of scope for this rule, SS 046-11, was approved by the governor on December 2, 2011, published in Register No. 672 on December 31, 2011 and approved by the Natural Resources Board on February 22, 2012.
Finding of Emergency
The department is aware that several ATV trails in Wisconsin overlap existing roads. From the onset of the program, these overlapping paths were identified as trails, signed accordingly, and were eligible to receive ATV grant funds. A few years ago, the ORV Advisory Council and WI County Forestry Association proposed that the department revise Ch. NR 64 to accommodate paths used by both ATVs and motor vehicles. These trail-route combinations – also called hybrid trails but commonly referred to as "troutes" – will be eligible for future maintenance grant funding at the current rate if it can be shown that the hybrid trails ("troute") existed prior to the effective date of this rule.
This emergency rule will establish a new category of all-terrain trail commonly called a "troute", or a trail-route combination, that provides a connector between trails and allows grant funding for these unique trails. An emergency rule is needed because we anticipate that the permanent rule revisions to Ch. NR 64 that will include troutes will not be effective until Sept 2012, at the earliest. Without this emergency rule, DNR will not be able to award grants to project sponsors for ATV "troutes" in July 2012, as is our practice. About one-third of the trails in northern Wisconsin are "troutes" and have been funded as trails since the program started. Our partners count upon grant funds for troute maintenance.
Without this Emergency Rule, the integrity and safety of troutes could be severely compromised. Our partners may be forced to close troutes without grant funding to maintain them until the permanent rule is effective. If troutes are closed, riders could be stranded in an unfamiliar location or be forced to turn around and ride back the same way they came instead of continuing onto their destination.

emergency_rules EmR1207 3. EmR1207 — The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board proposes an order to amend section NR 10.01 (3) (d) 1., relating to the bobcat hunting and trapping season.
This emergency rule was approved by the Governor on May 4, 2012. This emergency rule, modified to reflect the correct effective date, was approved by the governor on May 25, 2012.
The statement of scope for this rule, SS 009-12, was approved by the Governor on February 15, 2012, published in Register No. 674, on February 29, 2012, and approved by the Natural Resources Board on March 28, 2012.
This rule was approved and adopted by the State of Wisconsin Natural Resources Board on April 25, 2012.
Finding of Emergency
Pursuant to s. 227.24, Stats., the Department of Natural Resources finds that an emergency exists and that the attached rule is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety, or welfare.
If emergency rules are not promulgated, the season automatically reverts back to a single permit period beginning on the Saturday nearest October 17 and continuing through December 31 in 2012. Frequent change of season dates and regulations for hunting and trapping can be confusing and disruptive to the public, can result in citations being issued, and is not necessary for protection of the bobcat population in this situation. Some people will view a reversion to the single season framework as a reduction of opportunity that is not socially acceptable. Therefore, this emergency rule is needed to preserve the public welfare.

emergency_rules EmR1201 EmR1201 — Rule to revise section Tax 7.23, relating to the activities of brewers, bottlers, out-of-state shippers, and wholesalers.
The scope statement for this rule, SS 018-11, was approved by the governor on August 16, 2011, published in Register No. 669 on September 14, 2011, and approved by the Secretary of Revenue on September 26, 2011.
Finding of Emergency
The Department of Revenue finds that an emergency exists and that the rule order is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety or welfare. A statement of the facts constituting the emergency is:
The emergency rule is to administer the provisions of ss. 125.28 (5) (e) and 125.29 (3), Stats., as created by 2011 Wisconsin Act 32, and reflect revisions made by the Act to the authorized activities of persons holding wholesalers' and brewers' permits.
It is necessary to promulgate this rule order so that the above provisions may be administered in a fair and consistent manner.
This rule is therefore promulgated as an emergency rule and shall take effect upon publication in the official state newspaper. Certified copies of this rule have been filed with the Legislative Reference Bureau, as provided in s. 227.24, Stats.
