2017 - 2018 LEGISLATURE
March 9, 2018 - Introduced by Representatives Barca, Hebl, Spreitzer, Pope,
Berceau and Subeck, cosponsored by Senators Vinehout and L. Taylor.
Referred to Committee on Rules.
AJR115,1,2 1To repeal and recreate joint rule 27; relating to: public notice for assembly,
2senate, and joint committee meetings.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This joint resolution amends the joint rules to provide that public notice of every
assembly and senate committee meeting must be given at least 24 hours before the
commencement of the meeting, unless the chairperson and ranking minority
member of the committee determine that for good cause such notice is impossible or
impractical. In no case, however, may notice be provided less than two hours in
advance of a meeting. Similarly, the joint resolution amends the joint rules to provide
that public notice of every joint committee meeting must be given at least 24 hours
before the commencement of the meeting, unless the cochairpersons of the
committee determine that for good cause such notice is impossible or impractical.
In no case, however, may notice be provided less than two hours in advance of a
meeting.
The public notice for assembly, senate, and joint committee meetings must be
in such form as is reasonably likely to apprise members of the public and the news
media of the meeting and must indicate the day, hour, and place of the meeting and
the number, author, and relating clause of each proposal to be considered. The joint
resolution requires that every committee meeting must be publicly held in a place
reasonably accessible to members of the public and must be open to all citizens at all
times.
