The department of transportation must notify eligible males between the ages of 18 and 26 that submission of an application constitutes consent to have information sent to the SSS.  (Wisconsin Statutes 343.234 and 343.14(2)(em)) Wisconsin Statute 230.143 states that no one who is not in compliance with the SSS registration may receive “an original appointment to a position in the classified service” “during the period that the person is required to register.” Wisconsin Statute 36.11(27) details that no one who has failed to comply with SSS registration may receive state-supported financial aid for higher education during the period they are required to register. Wisconsin Statute 111.335(1)(cv) states that it is not discrimination to refuse employment to someone who has been convicted of violating the SSS law by failure to register.
