Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill changes the composition of the district board for the Milwaukee Area
Technical College, which, under current law, consists of the following nine members:
five employers, one school district administrator, one elected official, and two
additional members. Under current law, the district boards of all other technical
colleges consist of the following nine members: two employers, two employees, one

Under this bill, the composition of the district board of the Milwaukee Area Technical
College is the same as the other boards under current law.
The bill also adds three members to the appointment committee that appoints
members to the district board for the Milwaukee Area Technical College. Under
current law, the appointment committee consists of the county executive of
Milwaukee County and the chairpersons of the Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and
Washington County boards of supervisors. This bill adds the following three
members to the appointment committee: the mayor of the city of Milwaukee or his
or her designee; the president of the common council of the city of Milwaukee or his
or her designee; and the president of the board of school directors of the city of
Milwaukee or his or her designee. Under current law, three members of the
