Evers Signs Two Bills into Law Monday

Governor Tony Evers signed a pair of bills into law Monday
that each had bipartisan support.


Assembly Bill 10, now Wisconsin Act 7, was authored by senators
Dan Feyen of Fond du Lac and Janet Bewley of Mason, along with representatives
Adam Neylon of Pewaukee and Chris Taylor of Madison. The bill improves tax
fairness by ensuring that businesses moving out of state are not able to reduce
their taxes through expenses incurred in moving out of the state or out of the


Senate Bill 83, now Wisconsin Act 6, was authored by
Senators Dale Kooyenga of Brookfield, David Craig of Big Bend and Jon Erpenbach
of West Point, along with representatives Tyler Vorpagel of Plymouth and Lisa
Subeck of Madison. The bill creates the equal treatment of retail sales of all
types of liquor. Current law allows retailers to sell beer and wine in any
quantity for off-premises consumption, but quantities of distilled spirits are
limited. That difference often creates confusion for consumers. The new law
also retains the right for municipalities to determine by ordinance whether a
liquor license holder can sell liquor for off-premises consumption.
