Filed Statements of Lobbying Activity and Expenditures

This organization is one of fewer than 10 organizations registered with the Wisconsin Ethics Commission that is exempt from semi-annual reporting of its lobbying hours and expenditures. Instead of the semi-annual report the organization has submitted a written pledge not to spend more than $500 per year on lobbying. This organization is obliged to abide by the same standards of conduct as pertain to other organizations that retain lobbyists and to identify each bill or rule on which it has a lobbying communication.
