The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board was a non-partisan regulatory agency of the State of Wisconsin which administered and enforced Wisconsin law pertaining to campaign finance, elections, ethics and lobbying. The G.A.B. staff was non-partisan. The agency was organized into two divisions: The Elections Division and the Ethics and Accountability Division.
The Board consisted of six members, all former state judges, who serve staggered, six-year terms. Board members were appointed by the Governor, and served part-time, receiving per diems for each meeting they attended. The Governor of Wisconsin nominated a judge to fill a vacancy from a roster of potential Board members previously selected by a panel of Wisconsin Court of Appeals judges; and nominees were confirmed by the Wisconsin State Senate.
The Board was created in 2008 as the result of the merger of the former State Ethics Board and State Elections Boards.
Wednesday, June 29, 2016 was the last day of the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board. On Thursday, June 30, 2016, the Wisconsin Elections Commission and the Wisconsin Ethics Commission began operations.
