The Wisconsin Prohibition Enforcement Repeal Advisory, also known as the Severson Act Repeal Advisory was a Wisconsin referendum / advisory question on the April 2, 1929 ballot in Wisconsin, where it was approved.

  • This was the first of two questions from a legislative revision asking whether the Severson Act, which enforced prohibition, should be repealed or modified to allow for the manufacturing and sale of beer of with an alcohol content of less than 2.75%. This was a follow up to a 1926 advisory seeing for the amendment of the Volstead Act, the federal act enforcing prohibition.[1]
