MADISON, Wis. -

Attorney General Brad Schimel wants the state to pay state Justice Department attorneys' bar association dues.

Schimel included the request in the agency's 2017-19 budget request to Gov. Scott Walker. The governor's administration released agency requests on Friday.

The request includes one sentence asking for changes to state law allowing the state to pay DOJ attorneys' state bar association dues. It contains no other details. A DOJ spokesman didn't immediately respond to an email seeking more information.

According to the Wisconsin State Bar's website, the association is charging $254 in annual dues during the year that ends June 30, 2017.
