Wisconsin Legislative History

Resources in this category:
   Guide to Researching Wisconsin Legislation by Cannon, Peter (August 1, 1998) (Wisconsin Legislative Reference Bureau)
"LRB attorneys are responsible for drafting all bills and resolutions introduced into the legislature, and the LRB library collection includes many publications and records to aid in investigating legislative history. As part of their research duties, the LRB legislative analysts are expert in helping patrons understand the legislative process and find pertinent materials.

This brief describes what information is available and offers suggestions for researching the evolution of Wisconsin's constitutional and statutory law. It is written for attorneys and others who are searching for the meaning of statutory language or the legislature's intent in enacting a legal change."

Brief 98-8. 6 pages.

   Wisconsin Legislative Drafting Records (University of Wisconsin Law Library)
"Written materials, letters, and memoranda given to or created by the legislative drafting attorney in the process of drafting a bill, resolution, or subsequent amendments. Although these records are not designed to document legislative intent, they may provide some insight into the meaning of statutory language."
