Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill clarifies the reporting requirements made applicable to political
parties and certain committees authorized to receive contributions from
corporations, cooperatives, and American Indian tribes by 2015 Wisconsin Act 117.
Act 117 permits corporations, cooperatives, and American Indian Tribes to
make contributions of up to $12,000 a year to a segregated fund established and
administered by a political party or a legislative campaign committee. Act 117 also
permits corporations, cooperatives, and American Indian tribes to make unlimited
contributions to independent expenditure committees and referendum committees.
Act 117 requires each such political party and committee to prepare itemized reports
of contributions received and disbursements made by the political party or
committee.
This bill requires political parties and legislative campaign committees to
separately itemize contributions made to a segregated fund by corporations,

cooperatives, and American Indian tribes. The bill also requires independent
expenditure committees and referendum committees to separately itemize
contributions received by corporations, cooperatives, and American Indian tribes.
Finally, the bill requires political parties and legislative campaign committees to
separately itemize on their campaign finance reports disbursements made from
their segregated funds.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
