The Joint Legislative Council Committee is a standing committee of the Wisconsin State Legislature.

The role of the Joint Legislative Council, according to the Wisconsin State Legislature's website, is to "establish study committees to examine major issues and problems identified by the Legislature. The study committees appointed by the Council are made up of Legislators and citizens who are interested in or knowledgeable about the study topic. By using citizens on these committees, the Legislature benefits from the knowledge and expertise of Wisconsin's citizens....Study committees do most of their work when the Legislature is in recess. The Council reviews the legislation recommended by the study committees and, if a majority of Council members (12) vote for introduction, the legislation is sponsored by the Joint Legislative Council."



The following table describes committee membership at the beginning of the 2013 legislative session.
