The Wisconsin Attorney General announced the launch of its new website on Monday.
According to the news release, “visitors will find easy to locate links for some of the most common requests, such as ‘Filing a Consumer Complaint,’ and a new feature that answers some of the DOJ’s most ‘Frequently Asked Questions.’ Additionally, the ‘What Can We Help You Find’ link on the homepage directs visitors to the appropriate online resource for a number of public safety or criminal justice related matters.”
The website contains a significant amount of information. To help navigate, the site supports a general search box and a topical index to assist the researcher.
A nice feature is how they have arranged the individual pages. For example, the Open Government page includes links to presentations, statutory sections, the compliance guide, and similar guidance documents. The page also links to relevant AG opinions, memoranda and documents.
Many of us access the website to view recent AG opinions along with the initial request. Formal and informal opinions back to 2007 are available. They can be found under the tab labeled “Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.”
Formal Attorney General opinions back to 1982 are also available from the Wisconsin Legislative Reference Bureau.
