Wisconsin lobbying guidelines
The Government Accountability Board houses lobbying information and records for Wisconsin. The Pacific Research Institute ranks Wisconsin 28 out of the 50 states for accessibility of lobbying disclosure information.
Who must register?
Lobbyists must first apply for a lobbying license from the Government Accountability Board.
Every principal who makes expenditures exceeding $500 must file with the board a registration statement including disclosure of the general areas of legislative and administrative action which the principal is attempting to influence as well as the names of any agencies in which the principal seeks to influence.
