Gov. Scott Walker signed several bills into law over the past two weeks, traveling across the state to highlight bills that reform the criminal justice system and open the state to nonferrous mining.
On Dec. 9, Walker signed eight bills (Acts 124-131), including bills that create criminal penalties for patronizing prostitutes, a bill prohibiting adults from knowingly permitting illegal underage consumption of alcohol on premises under the adult’s control, and bills relating to court orders on operating revocation and ignition interlock devices.
On Dec. 11, signed Act 134, a bill from Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst) and Rep. Rob Hutton (R-Brookfield) that eliminates the prohibition on nonferrous mining in Wisconsin.
As 2017 ends, Walker has signed 135 bills into law this session. See our Year in Review for more highlights of bills signed since January.
