Wisconsin’s regulatory climate and permitting burdens are often viewed as among the most aggressive in the country. Every dollar a business spends on regulations that are too costly, complex and cumbersome is a dollar that can’t be spent to raise wages, hire additional workers or expand the business. WMC believes reforms are needed to improve Wisconsin’s regulatory climate and grow the state’s economy.
Allow legal challenges to state agency rules to be brought like all other civil actions against the state – in the county selected by the Plaintiff. Current law treats litigation against state agency rules differently than all other litigation and requires it to be filed in the Plaintiff’s home county. In addition, remove the statutory presumption that agencies followed all legal requirements when promulgating a rule, as most agencies cut corners and do not follow the law.
Oppose regulations and policies that negatively impact Wisconsin’s business climate. Oppose rules and policies that create uncertainty and are unnecessarily costly, complex or burdensome requirements on the regulated community. Support policies that incentivize investment and create an attractive business climate in Wisconsin so that our state continues to prosper.
