MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will conduct a hearing to accept public testimony on two proposed permanent rules. The proposed rules amend chapters PI 35 and 48 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code in order to conform Department rules governing the state's parental choice programs to changes in statute as a result of 2017 Wisconsin Acts 36 and 59. The proposed rules will also make other various changes to conform the rules to best practices and efficiencies in program administration.
Those intending to testify at the hearing will be required to present photo identification at the security desk near the Webster Street public entrance. Those using the building’s Butler Street handicapped accessible entrance should press a doorbell for admittance and check in with security. Written comments received no later than Oct. 25 will be given the same consideration as testimony presented at the hearing.
A copy of the proposed rules is available on the department's Administrative Rules webpage or the Wisconsin Legislature Rules site. Written comments on the proposed permanent rule may be made via the Legislature's form for submitting public comment. Questions or additional testimony on the rules may be sent by email to the department’s administrative rules coordinator or by U.S. mail to Carl Bryan, administrative rules coordinator, 125 South Webster Street, P.O.
