The Wisconsin Chapter of Americans for Prosperity filed a request in the state's highest court to block an administrative rule issued by the Government Accountability Board which requires registration and disclosure for communications engaged in issue advocacy.
The Wisconsin Club for Growth, Wisconsin Right to Life, and One Wisconsin Now have also filed lawsuits in federal court asking for a temporary injunction to the rule.
