Rep. Adam Neylon (608) 266-5120
Madison— Today State Representative Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee) issued the following statement in response to the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling that the legislature and governor have oversight of Department of Public Instruction administrative rules:
“This is a landmark ruling for the separation of powers in Wisconsin government. Before yesterday’s court ruling, the legislature and governor did not have oversight of administrative rules coming from the Department of Public Instruction, which is different than all other state agencies. Simply put, this decision gives elected officials a say in the administrative rules being proposed by DPI bureaucrats.
“As the author of the REINS Act, I am proud to help bring more accountability and oversight to state government. I applaud the good work of Wisconsin Institute of Law & Liberty on this case and commend our Wisconsin Supreme Court for siding with the Wisconsin Constitution.”
