WPPA Releases its Legislative Report Cards

MADISON – The Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) has released the results for its report cards for the 2007-2008 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 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:
