Bill to Allow Access to Official Documents More Easily

This seems pretty sensible.

A bill circulating in the state Legislature would allow residents to pick up vital records, including birth, marriage, death and divorce certificates, at any register of deeds office in the state, provided those events occurred in Wisconsin.

In the current system, people have to travel to the county in which the event occurred or send a request by mail.


Software upgrades to the state vital records system in recent years make it possible for register of deeds offices to issue records no matter where the documents originate, Deeds said. The bill would not have a fiscal impact since the technology upgrades have already been made, he said.

Fettes added it may take a few years for all records to be available at any county as state officials scan copies of certificates and implement them into the computer database.

    Sound like something that could have been done 20 years ago.
