Senator Jacque Brings Forward Two Bills

Senator Andre Jacque of De Pere is co-sponsoring a pair of bills aimed at protecting adults at risk and allowing children access to state parks.

The first of those bills aims to allow prosecutors to request that a court freeze or seize assets from a defendant who has been charged with a financial exploitation crime when the victim is an adult at risk in order to preserve them for restitution and allow at-risk adults to appear in court via phone or Zoom for certain cases among other things.

The other requires the Department of Natural Resources to waive the fee for an annual vehicle admission receipt issued to the parent or guardian of a public or private school pupil who possesses a valid Every Kid Outdoors pass issued by the U.S. National Park Service.

The bill was fully endorsed during the DNR and Wisconsin Conservation Congress spring hearing last month.
