You can't fully enjoy nature's beauty if you spend your time outside worried about ticks and Lyme disease.

Members of an Assembly committee are considering a bipartisan bill to require insect repellent to be sold at all Wisconsin state parks. Cases of Lyme disease have more than doubled in the state over the last 10 years. Other legislation would require the Department of Natural Sources to post signs warning about Lyme disease and create a committee to study ailments carried by ticks.
