Wisconsin Constitution lub xeev hais tias "qhov rooj ntawm txhua lub tsev" ntawm lub xeev Legislature "yuav tsum qhib," tshwj tsis yog muaj qee zaus. Tab sis txawm tias lub qhov rooj qhib, cov pej xeem yuav tsis paub tias muaj dab tsi tshwm sim.

Txoj kev loj hlob tuaj hem txog qhov pom kev - thiab tsoomfwv zoo - hauv Wisconsin. Qee pawg neeg tsim cai lij choj tau siv "cov npav xa ntawv" los pov npav, tsis yog kev pov npav thaum lub rooj sib tham pej xeem.

Cov kev ntsuas tseem ceeb tau dhau los ntawm pawg neeg li no. Pawg Neeg Sawv Cev ntawm Lub Koom Haum tau siv cov ntawv xaiv tsa hauv 2015 rau nce cov neeg tsim cai lij choj' per diem them, thiab hauv 2013 rau nqa qhov txwv ntawm kev sib tw nrhiav nyiaj txiag thaum lub sijhawm sau nyiaj txiag.

Hauv Senate, uas ntau dua tso cai rau kev coj ua, xa ntawv pov npav tsis ntev los no tau tso cai tsis sib haum xeeb high-capacity zoo txoj cai thiab ib tug rov qab tsev kawm ntawv charter sib cog lus.

Cov rooj sib tham uas cov neeg pov npav tuaj yeem tuaj koom los ntawm pej xeem lossis saib hauv WisconsinEye. Los ntawm kev zam cov txheej txheem no, kev xa ntawv pov npav ua rau cov pej xeem nyuaj nkag siab tias lawv cov neeg sawv cev raug xaiv tau pov npav li cas thiab vim li cas.

Qhov kev siv daim npav xa ntawv no muaj kev cuam tshuam txog kev cuam tshuam rau pej xeem txoj kev ntseeg hauv tsoomfwv. Ib qho kev thuam ntawm kev pov npav zoo hu ua qhov kev zam ntawm kev sib tham rau pej xeem "tsuas yog lwm qhov piv txwv ntawm kev zais qhov cuam tshuam ntawm txoj cai lawv tab tom enacting."

Thiab Brett Healy ntawm lub koom haum saib xyuas MacIver hais rau Milwaukee Journal Sentinel hauv xyoo 2013, "Yog tias nws tau siv los ntawm cov nom tswv kom tsis txhob muaj lus nug los ntawm pej xeem lossis xov xwm, qhov ntawd yog kev txhawj xeeb rau txhua tus hauv Wisconsin."

Cov ntawv xaiv tsa xa ntawv tsis muaj daim ntawv ceeb toom uas feem ntau ua ntej kev pov npav ntawm tus kheej - tshaj tawm hauv peb qhov chaw tsawg kawg 24 teev ua ntej, nrog rau ntawm Pawg Neeg Saib Xyuas Kev Cai Lij Choj lub vev xaib.

Hauv ob qho tib si 2017 thiab 2013, pawg neeg tsim cai lij choj tau pov npav los ntawm kev xa ntawv pov npav los ntiav cov tuam txhab kev cai lij choj los tiv thaiv lub xeev cov ntawv qhia chaw nyob hauv tsev hais plaub. Qee cov neeg sau xov xwm tau ceeb toom los ntawm Pawg Sib Tham, thiab Pawg Neeg Saib Xyuas Senate tau tshaj tawm ib tsab ntawv ceeb toom nyob rau hauv ib qho chaw ntsiag to Capitol. Lwm tus ntawm peb tau tawm ntawm lub voj voog.

Kev siv daim npav xa ntawv kuj tseem ua rau cov neeg tsim cai lij choj ntawm lub sijhawm los tawm tswv yim hloov kho. "Nws yog qhov pib coj nws los yog tso nws," hais tias xeev Senator Chris Larson, D-Milwaukee, xyoo 2013. "Tsis muaj chaw rau kev sib cav." Nws thiab lwm tus neeg tsim cai lij choj yuav tsum tau pov npav rau ntiav lub tuam txhab kev cai lij choj rau qhov kev tsis sib haum xeeb hauv cheeb tsam tsis paub txog cov ntsiab lus tseem ceeb, xws li lub tuam txhab tus nqi them nqi.

Republican cov thawj coj tsim cai tau sau tseg tias Democrats tau siv daim npav xa ntawv thaum lawv tswj hwm Senate hauv xyoo 2009, thiab coj qee qhov pov npav thaum lawv khiav tawm hauv lub xeev thaum xyoo 2011 Txoj Cai 10 kev sib ntaus sib tua.

Tab sis lub tswv yim phem tsis tau zoo dua vim ib tug neeg tau muaj lub tswv yim ntawd ua ntej. Transparency raug kev txom nyem ob txoj kev. Xyoo 2005, lub xeev lub tsev hais plaub tau txiav txim siab siv daim npav xa ntawv hauv rooj sib tham qhib kev cai lij choj, hais tias lawv tau ua "kev ua haujlwm ntawm tsoomfwv txhua qhov tab sis tsis pom."

Cov lus nug txog kev cai lij choj ib sab, cov pej xeem yuav tsum tsis txhob tos rau lub tsev hais plaub yav tom ntej kom txwv lossis kho qhov teeb meem no. Cov neeg tsim cai lij choj yuav tsum hnov ​​​​ntau thiab meej tias cov kev xaiv tsa yuav tsum raug coj los ntawm tus kheej, nrog rau txhua qhov kev txiav txim siab, kev tawm tswv yim, thiab cov txheej txheem uas cuam tshuam. Txwv tsis pub, kev ywj pheej raug txo kom tsuas yog shuffling daim ntawv.
