Newsmakers: Overview of Wisconsin Legislative Council Study Committees
On August 29, 2022, Newsmakers Host Lisa Pugh sat down with the Director of the Legislative Council, Anne Sappenfield, to provide a study committees overview, including the challenges the legislature hopes members will address. Each even-numbered year of the biennium Wisconsin’s Joint Legislative Council establishes what are known as study committees. These committees, with a unique combination of legislator and citizen members, end up crafting legislation on some of the state’s most complex and controversial issues, typically with bi-partisan support. This year the Council is supporting 7 committees. WisconsinEye is offering exclusive coverage of their proceedings.
