Action Alert: Assembly Bill 365 Update

    • Currently the bill is proposed for first class cities, largely as a result of the Milwaukee Representatives sponsoring it.
      With that said, there was interest at the hearing from Racine, and it’s possible that an amended version including second class cities could move forward.
