Capitol Notes: Evers Wants Bill That Would Curb Police Use-Of-Force Policies

Chuck Quirmbach
Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in Capitol Notes.

Protests continue across much of Wisconsin, after George Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis police. Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has asked the Republican-controlled Legislature to immediately pass a bill designed to reform use of force policies in Wisconsin

In this week’s Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com what the chances are of a bill being passed.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
