Gov. Evers Signs Two More Bipartisan Bills
 
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today, in addition to signing Special Session Senate Bill 1, took action on two more bills that received bipartisan support in the Legislature. 

The governor signed Senate Bill 25, now 2021 Wisconsin Act 5, which changes current law to allow a cooperative to hold an annual member meeting or special member meeting and conduct votes remotely. Additionally, the bill allows a cooperative's board of directors to adopt by laws that are effective only in an emergency and provides emergency powers to a cooperative in anticipation of or during an emergency. 

Additionally, the governor signed Senate Bill 27, now 2021 Wisconsin Act 6, amending the definition of "multijurisdictional" to include any other country or nation for the purposes of the Wisconsin lottery.
