QUORUM CALL

The Assembly today signed off on a bill that would let school boards share camera footage with police.

But the legislation faces an uncertain future as it first needs Senate approval before heading to Gov. Scott Walker’s desk.

The bill, which passed on a voice vote, would create an exception in student privacy laws to let law enforcement get school surveillance footage if it “serves a legitimate safety interest.” The language was excluded from the $100 million Senate school safety plan the chamber passed earlier this week, although it was included in the guv’s original special session call.

Meanwhile, members this evening also passed:

*SB 615, which cleared the Senate unanimously Feb. 20. It would create a procedure for granting certificates of qualification for employment for persons convicted of a crime. It now heads to Walker’s desk.

*AB 740, which passed an Assembly committee Feb. 14. It would waive a $62 fee for a certificate of title when a vehicle is transferred to one’s spouse upon his or her death. The bill hasn’t yet cleared the Senate, and would have to before Walker could sign it in to law.
