Bill removing residency requirement advances

Learn more about:

The Assembly Labor and Workforce Development Committee has passed a bill eliminating the requirement that Milwaukee police officers and firefighters live within the city.
AB 65 would require those employees in a first class city to instead live within the city’s county or any adjacent county. The measure passed 5-4, with Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, joining Dem members in voting against the bill.
Kapenga said officers and fire fighters who don’t want to live in Milwaukee could take a job in another community, and that the residency requirement for those employees isn’t a statewide concern.
