Library Board Membership Bill Signed into Law

Senate Bill 265 was signed into law by Gov. Walker on Nov. 12th as Wisconsin Act 99.

The bill reduces the minimum required members of a federated library board that covers two or more counties from 15 to 11 members.

The bill’s author, Senator Steve Nass (R-Whitewater), said the bill is meant to help Waukesha and Jefferson counties, who are currently in the process of combining their boards.
