The WPPA Releases its 2009-2010 Legislative Report Cards

MADISON – The Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) today announced the results for its report cards for the 2009-2010 legislative session.

During each session, the WPPA governmental affairs staff identifies legislation that impacts the WPPA’s membership. Preliminary positions on those bills are made by the WPPA governmental affairs staff and the executive director. Those positions are then considered for ratification by the WPPA Legislative Committee and Board of Directors, all of whom are active law enforcement officers. All ratified positions for or against a bill are included on the legislative report card. Lastly, legislation is weighted by the WPPA Legislative Committee, and points are distributed in the following manner:
