After months of meetings, drafts, debates, hearings, and everything else that goes into taking an idea and creating a law, the WBA-supported omnibus bill (SB 457) has been signed by Governor Tony Evers!
A huge “thank you” goes out to all the bankers, WBA staff, and legislators who worked on making this proposal into a reality. The bill makes several changes to statutes relating to banking practices. Although many see these changes as tweaks to the law, they will have a huge impact on Wisconsin banks in the future.
