Hearing Scheduled on Recall Review Period Extension

April 28, 2011

MADISON, WI – A hearing has been scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday, April 29, before Dane County Circuit Court Judge John W. Markson, to consider a motion filed by the Government Accountability Board for an extension of the time to review eight recall petitions.  The Dane County case number is 2011-CV-1660.

Under state law, the G.A.B. has 31 days after a recall petition is offered for filing to determine its sufficiency.  The G. A.B. has asked for an extension due to the unprecedented number of petitions which have been offered for filing, and to make it possible to hold many of the recall elections on the same day, July 12, 2011.  Please refer to the motion for the G.A.B.’s proposed schedule of meeting, deadline and election dates.

A copy of the motion and supporting affidavits for the motion are available on the G.A.B. website:
