by Rep. Meyers Signed into Law
MADISON, WISCONSIN January 24, 2020 (LSN) State Representative Beth Meyers (D-Bayfield) issued the following statement on the three bipartisan bills signed into law by Gov. Tony Evers
“These bills were a product of good bipartisan work, the kind of work that makes me proud to be a legislator,” said Rep. Beth Meyers. “We’ve made selling a home easier and more secure for realtors and homeowners, and we’ve worked across the aisle to educate Wisconsinites about the dangers and steps they can take to prevent Lyme disease while providing the tools to protect people in our parks. I’m thankful that my colleagues and I were able to this done, that Gov. Evers signed these bills and to those who advocated for these issues and still believe people can work together and fix problems.”
The following is a summary of the three bills: Wisconsin Act 72 clarifies it is not an invasion of privacy to have surveillance equipment in properties when selling property, an important act that improves security for realtors and homeowners. This Act, originally Senate Bill 247, was coauthored with Sen. Janet Bewley (D-Mason).
Wisconsin Act 73 requires the Department of Natural Resources to design and produce signs that raise awareness of Lyme disease, and Wisconsin Act 74 requires insect repellent to be available for purchase in state parks and forests to help reduce the incidence of Lyme disease in Wisconsin.
