A lobbying organization may, consistent with Wisconsin’s lobbying law, purchase
services from a business wholly owned by a state legislator only if the
organization’s offer to purchase can reasonably be said to be available to the
general public. Even if the organization can demonstrate that its offer to
purchase is available to the general public, the better course would be for the
organization not to engage in business with a company wholly owned by a state
legislator unless the organization is satisfied that its doing so would not
undermine the public’s confidence in the legislator’s financial independence from
the organization. OEB 96-7 (April 25, 1996)
