The Wisconsin Legislative Council is the research and advisory arm of the Wisconsin State Legislature. It was created in 1947 and has been a model for similar advisory groups in state legislatures across the county. In 2018 a special committee – The Legislative Council Study Committee on Child Placement and Support – was formed consisting of legislators and public members. CFLCW Member Tiffany Highstrom, JD, a partner with Stafford Rosenbaum LLP in Madison was a member of that Committee.

Attorney Highstrom recently provided CFLCW with a summary of the Legislative Council Study Committee on Child Placement and Support.
