This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot

The Wisconsin Treasurer and Secretary of State Amendment was not on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Wisconsin as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure was not voted on during two consecutive legislative sessions and thereby was not on the ballot in November 2014.

The proposed measure would have eliminated the offices of the treasurer and secretary of state. According to reports, the Wisconsin Attorney General would have become second in line to the governor.[1][2]

State Rep. Scott Krug started circulating the proposed measure on March 23, 2011, for sponsorships. The bill was originally proposed by Treasurer Kurt Schuller.[2]
