2017 WISCONSIN ACT 365
An Act relating to: revising various provisions of the statutes for the purpose of making corrections and reconciling conflicts (Correction Bill).
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
365,1 Section 1. 7.31 (5) of the statutes, as affected by 2015 Wisconsin Act 118, section 266, is amended to read:
7.31 (5) The commission shall conduct regular training programs to ensure that individuals who are certified by the commission under this section are knowledgeable concerning their authority and responsibilities. The commission shall pay all costs required to conduct the training programs from the appropriation under s. 20.511 20.510 (1) (bm).
Note: Inserts correct cross-reference. Section 20.511 (1) (bm) was renumbered to s. 20.510 (1) (bm) by 2015 Wis. Act 118.
365,2 Section 2. The treatment of 7.315 (1) (b) 1. of the statutes by 2015 Wisconsin Act 229 is not repealed by 2015 Wisconsin Act 261. Both treatments stand.
Note: There is no conflict of substance. As merged by the legislative reference bureau, s. 7.315 (1) (b) 1. reads:
1. Each inspector other than a chief inspector and each special voting deputy appointed under s. 6.875 shall view or attend at least one training program every 2 years during the period beginning on January 1 of each even-numbered year and ending on December 31 of the following year. Except as provided in subd. 2., no individual may serve as an inspector, other than a chief inspector, or as a special voting deputy under s. 6.875 at any election unless the individual has completed training for that election provided by the municipal clerk pursuant to rules promulgated under par. (a) within 2 years of the date of the election.
365,3 Section 3. The treatment of 7.315 (1) (b) 2. of the statutes by 2015 Wisconsin Act 229 is not repealed by 2015 Wisconsin Act 261. Both treatments stand.
Note: There is no conflict of substance. As merged by the legislative reference bureau, s. 7.315 (1) (b) 2. reads:
2. Only when an individual who has received training under subd. 1. is unavailable to perform his or her election duties due to sickness, injury, or other unforeseen occurrence may an individual who has not received training under subd. 1. be appointed to serve as an inspector, other than chief inspector, or a special voting deputy. The appointment of an individual to serve under this subdivision shall be for a specific election and no individual may be appointed under this subdivision more than one time in a 2-year period beginning on January 1 of each even-numbered year and ending on December 31 of the following year.
365,4 Section 4. 11.0102 (3) (j) of the statutes, as created by 2015 Wisconsin Act 117, is amended to read:
11.0102 (3) (j) Determine whether each report or statement required to be filed under this chapter has been filed in the form and by the time prescribed by law, and whether it conforms on its face to the requirements of this chapter. The officer shall immediately send to any committee that is delinquent in filing, or that has filed otherwise than in the proper form, a notice that the committee has failed to comply with this chapter. Whenever a candidate committee has appointed an individual other than the candidate as campaign treasurer, the commission officer shall send the notice to both the candidate and the treasurer of the candidate committee.
Note: Inserts the correct term. Section 11.0102 (3) (intro.) requires “each filing officer, other than the commission" to take the actions under sub. (3) (a) to (j) and creates no obligations for the ethics commission. Section 11.0102 (3) (j), as created by 2015 Wis. Act 117, was derived from and is nearly identical to the previously existing s. 11.22 (9), which placed the obligation in the 3rd sentence to send the notice on the filing officer.
365,5 Section 5. 15.61 (3) of the statutes, as affected by 2015 Wisconsin Act 118, is amended to read:
15.61 (3) No member, while serving on the board commission, may become a candidate, as defined in s. 11.0101 (1), for state office or local office, as defined in s. 5.02.
Note: Makes terminology consistent with changes made by 2015 Wis. Act 118. Section 15.61 (3) was renumbered from s. 15.60 (6) by Act 118. Section 15.60 related to the creation and membership of the Government Accountability Board. Section 15.61 relates to the creation and membership of the Elections Commission.
365,6 Section 6. 16.855 (22) of the statutes, as affected by 2015 Wisconsin Act 55, is amended to read:
16.855 (22) The provisions of this section, except sub. (10m), do not apply to construction work for any project that does not require the prior approval of the building commission under s. 13.48 (10) (a) if the project is constructed in accordance with policies and procedures prescribed by the building commission under s. 13.48 (29). If the estimated construction cost of any project, other than a project exempted under sub. (12m) or (24), is at least $50,000, and the building commission elects to utilize the procedures prescribed under s. 13.48 (29) to construct the project, the department shall provide adequate public notice of the project and the procedures to be utilized to construct the project on a publicly accessible computer site.
NOTE: The creation of s. 16.855 (24) by 2015 Wis. Act 55 was removed from Act 55 by the governor's partial veto.
365,7 Section 7. 23.33 (2) (ig) 1. a. of the statutes, as affected by 2015 Wisconsin Act 89, is amended to read:

365,8 Section 8. The treatment of 29.024 (7) of the statutes by 2015 Wisconsin Act 89 is not repealed by 2015 Wisconsin Act 222. Both treatments stand.
Note: There is no conflict of substance. As merged by the legislative reference bureau, s. 29.024 (7) reads:
(7) Duplicates. If any license, permit, certificate, or card is lost, the person to whom the license, permit, certificate, or card was issued may apply to the department for a duplicate by submitting an affidavit proving loss. The department may accept information in a form other than an affidavit. The department shall make an inquiry and investigation as it considers necessary. If the department is satisfied that the loss has been proven, the department may issue a duplicate license, permit, certificate, or card to the applicant. Tags issued with a license, permit, certificate, or card are parts of the license, permit, certificate, or card and loss of any part is considered to be loss of the entire license, permit, certificate, or card. Upon applying for a duplicate license, permit, certificate, or card, the original is no longer valid and the applicant shall surrender all parts of the original remaining in his or her possession to the department. No person may possess any original license, permit, certificate, or card for which a duplicate has been issued. No duplicate stamp may be issued and, if a stamp is lost, the person to whom it was issued is required to apply for and pay the regular fee in order to receive a new stamp.
365,9 Section 9. 29.361 (3m) of the statutes is amended to read:

An artificial water body that meets the requirements of this paragraph includes a stormwater management pond that does not discharge into a navigable waterway except as a result of storm events.
Note: Inserts a missing word to adopt a defined term applicable to s. 30.19, consistent with the word usage in the paragraph and the remainder of s. 30.19.
365,11 Section 11. 30.26 (4) (a) (intro.) of the statutes, as affected by 2015 Wisconsin Act 170, is amended to read:
30.26 (4) (a) (intro.) The department may not prohibit the crossing of a bridge over a wild river by an all-terrain vehicle or utility terrain vehicle traveling on an all-terrain vehicle trail, as defined under s. 23.33 (1) (d), by an off-highway motorcycle traveling on an off-highway motorcycle trail designated under sub. s. 23.335 (19) (b), or by a snowmobile traveling on a snowmobile trail, as defined under s. 350.01 (17) that is constructed in any of the following locations:

Note: Inserts “and" made necessary as the result of the governor's partial veto of 2015 Wis. Act 55, section 1162r.
365,14 Section 14. 45.01 (9) of the statutes is amended to read:
