Senate Bill 281/Assembly Bill 353 attempts to fundamentally change cooperative organization in Wisconsin

November 6, 2017

The Wisconsin State Legislature is scheduled to vote onĀ Senate Bill 281/Assembly Bill 353 tomorrow. These bills call for fundamental changes to the laws governing cooperatives in the state. In particular, the change in cooperative law will allow 20% of the seats on a cooperative board to be turned over to non-members, and will allow cooperatives to award voting power based on patronage, rather than the current one-member/one-vote rule.
