Topic Not Assigned A Bill Or Rule Number
Principals registered to lobby in Wisconsin are required to report "topics" on which they are lobbying. Topics are matters which have not yet become bills, resolutions, or administrative rulemaking proceedings.
For instance, if a principal lobbied on crowning cheese King of Wisconsin, and that matter had not yet been introduced in legislation, the principal should report "crowning cheese King of Wisconsin" as a topic within 15 days of the first communication.
The Litigation Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin goes on record as favoring a uniform 30-day time-to-answer rule, modifying 2005 Act 442. The time to answer lawsuits was recently changed in a manner that causes inconsistencies and confusion.
