April 2018 Legislative Update

Greetings all,

For the April Legislative update, Hamilton Consulting Group has put out an overview of the legislative session. Please view the 17-18 End of Session Update document to have a clear idea of what has taken place (17-18 End of Session Update). The governor still has a few bills to sign however, this will give a synopsis of what has occurred over the last couple of years.

Badger State Sheriff’s Association Legislative Committee and our Legislative Committee will be meeting bi-monthly for the next year to come up with our legislative agenda for the next session which will start in January 2019. If anybody has any thoughts on what they would like to see proposed for the next session, you can email me. However, one item that we will again bring up and work with authors to move this through the next session, will be the Protective Status bill.

Stay safe all and have a wonderful summer and fall, and a spring if it will ever quit snowing.

Jeff Klatt
Chair, WS&DSA Legislative Committee
