2003/2004 WI Legislative Drafting Records Available on UW Law Library Site

The Wisconsin Legislative Drafting Records for the 2003/2004 session have recently been added to the UW Law Library's drafting records database which is freely available on the Web. The documents are available in PDF format. A guide to using the collection is also available.

Drafting records are 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.

The drafting records have been made available in electronic format by the Wisconsin Legislative Reference Bureau. The UW Law Library has made these electronic records freely available from our Web site.
