Hear me talk in this radio interview with a local radio station from Monday, October 17, 2011.

Here is the actual video of the April’s Law hearing. AB-136 starts about 15 minutes in, and lasts almost 40 minutes. I’m the last 7-8 minutes of that portion.  You will need to agree to the user terms, and it will prompt you right in. Thanks for tuning in.

Now here is the local paper, the Racine Journal Times write up about the whole thing.  I think this one helps me sound good.  Bless this gal!

This is the type of stuff I’d like to push all over, far and wide!

Exciting news, everyone!

 

AB-136, aka April's Law Wisconsin, is being heard in the Committee on Criminal Justice and Corrections!  We need as many people as possible to either come to the hearing or to submit their written testimony to support this piece of Legislation.

 

The hearing will take place on Wednesday, October 19,2011 @ 9:30am in room 300 Northeast State Capitol.  Let me know if you'd like to carpool.

 

 

Just to let you know, the Racine County Sheriff's office is also supporting this.

 

 

If you can't make it, please send me an email, so I can submit it - lika.yvi@gmail.com or you may send it to the members of the Committee on Criminal Justice & Corrections, which is hearing the Bill to vote on it.  Here is a list of those who are on the committee.  Please remember to have add your name and pertinent info, and thank them for their time. 

http://legis.wisconsin.gov/w3asp/commpages/IndividualCommittee.aspx?commid=496

 

I'm hoping to get as many people or letters in, because the more support we have, the better chance it has to come to a vote rather than dropped on the floor.

 

Thank you all for your kind support, and please don't forget to submit your letters for support, and if you can, please join me at the hearing!  Just to ensure that we will be there on time, I'll probably be leaving around 6:30AM to ensure I can be there, because it looks as if AB-136 is the first billing for this hearing.

 

Please keep me posted!

WOOT! Okay, sorry to have a party here w/o inviting people sooner, but, this is huge news, and I think it's exciting.

Representative Mason is putting the final touches on April's Law Wisconsin, to ensure that kidnapping for intent to molest children gets added into the current draft, and will hopefully be introducing it to the Assembly later this month. This is VERY exciting to begin with.

And now, even MORE on the good news, up and up, Senator Wangaard's office FINALLY contacted me about April's Law Wisconsin, and wants to set up a meeting in the first part of May.

I'd sent him a message through one of these other sites, and got this automated message back from him:

Thank you for contacting my office. I appreciate that you wrote to me to express your concerns. Please be assured that my staff and I are reading every email we receive. We are still working through a backlog of emails from the budget repair bill, but we will review your email as soon as possible.

Regards,

Van Wanggaard
Wisconsin State Senator
Senate District 21Serving Racine County

My response back was:

In reading every email, please ensure that you get back to me ASAP as for the April's Law draft that I've emailed to you several times. My home phone is 262-xxx-xxxx - we ought to do a meeting to talk about protecting our children from sex predators on and off line.

From J the legislative assistant:

Hello Ms. S,
I'd be happy to set up a meeting in Madison with Senator Wanggaard. We are currently scheduling for the first and second week of May on our calendar--you can give our office a call at (608) xxx-xxxx to set up a meeting or email me with some dates that work for you. The Senator is typically at the Capitol Tuesday-Thursday every week.
Thank you!
J
Legislative Aide
Office of Senator Wanggaard

So, I'm shooting for Monday, May 2, for an afternoon coffee/tea. I'm looking forward to it, and well, lets hope all goes well to get April's Law Wisconsin into the law books! Thanks for all supporters of April's Law, even if in concept only. For now, I'm happier than pie. WOOT!
