(Madison, WI) — Republican lawmakers at the Wisconsin Capitol are not wasting any time in getting a constitutional amendment on bail changes to a vote. A Senate committee will have a hearing tomorrow on the plan to change the Wisconsin Constitution to allow judges to consider more things when setting bail. The constitution right now requires bail for everyone, and stops judges from considering just how serious the crime is, or how serious the suspect’s criminal record is. The hope is to fast-track the votes in the Capitol to get the bail amendment on the spring ballot.
