1An Act to create
227.111 of the statutes; relating to: the rule-making authority
2of certain agencies.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
The bill prohibits a commission or board, including a credentialing board, that
has not taken any action with respect to the promulgation of a rule in ten years or
more from taking any such action in the future unless a subsequent law specifically
authorizes it to do so.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
227.111 of the statutes is created to read:
4227.111 Rule-making authority of certain agencies. (1)
In this section, 5
“restricted agency” means an affiliated credentialing board, as defined in s. 15.01 6
(1g), a board, as defined in s. 15.01 (1r), a commission, as defined in s. 15.01 (2), or 7
an examining board, as defined in s. 15.01 (7), that has not taken any action under 8
this subchapter with respect to the promulgation of a rule in 10 years or more.
Notwithstanding ss. 227.10 and 227.11 and any other provision authorizing 2
or requiring a restricted agency to promulgate rules, a restricted agency may not 3
take any action with respect to the promulgation of a rule unless a subsequent law 4
specifically authorizes such action.
