CONTACT: Rep. Considine
Madison – Today, Governor Scott Walker signed two bills into law that were authored with the contributions of Rep. Dave Considine (D-Baraboo):
Assembly Bill (AB) 250 and 251 were authored by the Assembly Education Committee, of which Rep. Considine is a member. Both bills make changes to update the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) administrative code regarding grant administration.
AB 253 was authored by Rep. Joan Ballweg (R-Markesan) and Sen. Luther Olsen (R-Ripon). It clarifies, among other measures, that published foreclosure sale notices must include the street address of the property and the sum of the judgment. This portion of the bill was included at the suggestion of a constituent in Rep. Considine’s district.
“I’m proud to have been a part of these bills, both as an author and a collaborator, and it was great to see them signed into law today,” said Rep. Considine. “It can be difficult to find ways to work together in this political environment, but these bills prove it is still possible.”
Also signed into law was Senate Bill (SB) 119, legalizing the growth and processing of industrial hemp. While Rep. Considine was not a co-author of SB 119, he has advocated for industrial hemp since his first term and was glad to see it become law today.
