The Wisconsin Ethics Commission was created by 2015 Wisconsin Act 118, which eliminated the Government Accountability Board on June 30, 2016 and replaced it with two separate commissions to oversee the administration of elections and ethics. Information about the Wisconsin Elections Commission is available on its website: elections.wi.gov.
The Wisconsin Ethics Commission is required by statutes to meet in person four times each year, but may hold additional meetings if deemed necessary. Please click on the "Commission Meeting Schedule" header link above to view the events calendar and find the next scheduled meeting.
The six Wisconsin Ethics Commission members are appointed by the four Legislative Leaders and the Governor, and are equally divided between the two major political parties.
The nonpartisan staff of the Wisconsin Ethics Commission is led by an Administrator who is appointed by the Commission and who is subject to confirmation by the Wisconsin State Senate.
