Wisconsin Senate Bill 29 - The Uniform Unsworn Declarations Act

A Wisconsin Senate Bill with current majority support from the WI State Senate and Assembly is with Governor Tony Evers as of 3/21/2024. This would be an Act to repeal 887.015 (2) (e); and to amend 887.015 (title), 887.015 (1), 887.015 (2) (b), 887.015 (2) (f), 887.015 (3) and 887.015 (6) of the statutes; Relating to: the Uniform Unsworn Declarations Act.

This bill modifies the Uniform Unsworn Foreign Declarations Act that

Wisconsin has adopted to adopt the Uniform Unsworn Declarations Act in its place.

Under current law, if a declarant who is outside of the jurisdiction of the United

States makes a declaration in a signed record that is not given under oath (unsworn

declaration) and that meets the statutory criteria, the unsworn declaration may be

used in place of a sworn declaration under certain circumstances. The bill modifies

current law by removing the requirement that a declarant be outside of the

jurisdiction of the United States to make an unsworn declaration, and in so doing

adopts the uniform act known as the Uniform Unsworn Declarations Act.
