How to Locate Your Legislators
Find your Senator (Senate representative) and Representative (Assembly representative)
Step 1: Go to https://legis.wisconsin.gov/
Step 2: Enter your address into the search box above "Find Your Legislator"
Step 3: Click on your legislator's name for more information
Step 4: Gather important information about your legisator
Use the Madison Office address to mail letters (can mail, email, or both)
Call the Telephone number to set up an appointment or follow up on a recent communication
Email your legislator
If the Staff person responds to the email, continue to include the legislator's email in all communication. Staff may be responsible for scheduling appointments with the legislator or may meet with you if the legislator is unavailable. Be persistent and ask to meet directly with your legislator.
Check if your legislator sits on committee(s). A committee is a small group of legislators that study bills related to the committee's focus.
For licensure, the following committees are likely to review the interpreter licensure bill:
- Assembly Committee on Regulatory Licensing Reform (Representatives)
- Senate Committee on Labor and Regulatory Reform (Senators)
If your legislator is not on the above committee, encourage them to speak with colleagues on these specific committees about the interpreter licensure bill.
