MADISON – Governor Scott Walker today thanked the Wisconsin State Legislature for approving juvenile justice reform with bipartisan support. This reform was a key component of Governor Walker’s Ambitious Agenda for 2018.
“Over the past year, we’ve worked with county officials, members of the judiciary, and lawmakers in both political parties on juvenile justice reform,” Governor Walker said. “I thank members in both parties for their commitment to long-term solutions, and because of our work together, we are helping improve long-term outcomes for both juveniles and our staff in these facilities.”
The bill now goes to Governor Walker for his signature.
