MADISON, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) on Tuesday urged the legislature to pass regulatory reform legislation that would bolster legislative oversight and bring about more transparency to the administrative rule-making process. The legislation builds on the reforms implemented by the REINS Act, which the legislature passed in 2017. Lawmakers are expected to consider the reforms during the extraordinary session.
AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott issued the following statement:
“This legislation would be a win for democracy, a win for good government, and a win for the Wisconsin citizen. These reforms would strengthen the separation of powers, bolster transparency, and expand legislative oversight by restoring authority to the legislature – the people most accountable to Wisconsin voters. We look forward to working with the legislature and Governor-elect Tony Evers in the coming years to advance more reforms that shift power back to the people.”
