Wisconsin GAB Votes to Allow Lobbyist Delivery of Contributions
The Government Accountability Board (GAB) voted to allow lobbyists to pass along donations from political action committees and clients to state lawmakers at any point during the year.
GAB previously concluded recently signed Senate Bill 655 removed the ability of lobbyists to deliver anyone else’s contribution at any time.
The change in interpretation was supported by Republican legislative leaders, lobbyists, and attorneys for the Legislature.
