Wisconsin: More on the recall of laws proposal

Here's some more on the recall of laws proposal. State Rep. Terese Berceau (D) said the proposal "modeled on an Ohio law — would be a less expensive, more focused way to let the public have a say in the passage of controversial legislation."

Under Berceau’s proposal, the threshold for having a recall vote on a law would be the same as it is now for statewide candidates — 25 percent of the total number of people who voted in the prior gubernatorial election would have to sign a recall petition.
Also note:

With this proposal modeled after an Ohio law, Berceau said it would be cheaper for the state because the referendum could be added to the next scheduled election instead of the special elections usually required now.
