The Assembly passed AJR2/SJR3 this afternoon on a bi-partisan vote of 68-31. A statewide referendum will be held in April 2018, and Wisconsin voters will get to decide whether or not the state treasurer position is officially eliminated.
Representative Michael Schraa (R-Oshkosh), a co-author of the proposal, has repeatedly promised that if voters ultimately decide to keep the office, he will draft a bill to restore the state treasurer’s duties, many of which have been transferred to state agencies over the years.
Both Schraa and the current State Treasurer Matt Adamczyk issued statements praising the move.
