Senator Gudex (R-Fond du Lac) introduced SJR 4 on Wednesday, which proposes to eliminate from the constitution the office of state treasurer. The proposal would replace the state treasurer’s position on the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands of with the lieutenant governor. In order to take effect, the joint resolution must be passed by both houses of the legislature in consecutive sessions and then pass a statewide referendum.
The bill has been referred to the Senate Committee on Labor and Government Reform.
