  • Member input form – WALHDAB members can request that the Public Affairs Committee take specific action on a policy, plan, proposal, or piece of legislation.

  • Legislative Notifications Get personalized email notifications based on Wisconsin’s legislative and administrative rules activity. You can follow legislation by subject, proposal, committee, authors, and more. Get administrative rules notices, following the administrative register by agency or chapter.
