WCC Resumes Publication of the Capitol Update
With the start of the new legislative session, WCC staff will resume regular publication of the Capitol Update every two weeks, with special updates as events warrant. Additional updated information is also regularly posted on the WCC website, www.wisconsincatholic.org.
Legislators Set 2013-14 Calendar and Floor Period Schedule
The first day of the new legislative session always includes the housekeeping tasks of adopting rules of procedure to govern action in both houses and setting the calendar for the two-year session. The most important dates on the calendar are the "floor periods" during which the two houses are in session to debate and enact legislation.

Save the Date: Catholics at the Capitol, April 10, 2013
Every two years, the WCC hosts Catholics at the Capitol when hundreds of Catholics from around the state come to Madison for a day of formation and legislative advocacy. This day-long event will take place at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin, on Wednesday, April 10, 2013. The keynote speaker will be the Most Reverend Peter F. Christensen.
The WCC invites everyone to take advantage of this unique opportunity to pray with fellow Catholics, learn about issues related to Catholic social teaching, and visit with legislators and policy makers in the State Capitol. Please mark your calendars now and "save the date" for Catholics at the Capitol 2013.
Registration materials will be available soon at www.wisconsincatholic.org.
