The happenings "inside" the Wisconsin State Treasury and across the street at the State Capitol

Committee Will Hear From State Treasurer on Elimination of Office


I will appear before the Committee on Judiciary and Ethics Thursday August 18th to offer testimony on AJR 26, the legislation I drafted that would eliminate the Office of State Treasurer and Secretary of State’s Office from the Wisconsin Constitution.

I ran for the Office of State Treasurer on the pledge to work to eliminate his position as well as that of Secretary of State. Immediately after beginning my term, I began working on the resolution to change the Wisconsin Constitution.

Changing the constitution is not an easy task. After the committee hearing, should they forward AJR 26 to the legislature, it will require votes from both houses in this session. If passed, legislators would have to vote on it again, in the same form with no changes, in the next session. If passed again, it would be placed on a statewide referendum allowing state voters the final decision. The earliest that could happen would be 2013.

Following my testimony, the transcript will be placed here on this blog and will be made available to the media.
