[Madison, WI]  On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Senate passed a package of tougher on crime bills. The package includes multiple measures aimed at cracking down on motor vehicle theft and reckless driving. Following the vote, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement:

“Wisconsin has seen an epidemic of auto theft and reckless driving. In Milwaukee County alone there were over 5,000 instances of motor vehicle theft in 2018.[1] The bills that passed the Senate today keep our communities safe by giving law enforcement new tools to stop dangerous individuals from continuing to inflict harm on our communities.”

The Senate plans to reconvene at 7:30am tomorrow morning to vote on the final passage of an income tax cut for hard-working Wisconsin families.
