Note: Beginning Sept. 1, 2016 comments on proposed administrative rules will be accepted through the Wisconsin Legislature’s website at docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/code. All submitted comments will be sent to the appropriate agency rules coordinators. It is necessary to include contact information in your submitted comments if you wish to receive a response. The previous administrative rules website "health.wisconsin.gov/admrules/public/Home" was decommissioned on Sept. 1.
