Walker Signs Multiple Bills Ahead Of Deadline

Monday, April 2nd, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Gov. Scott Walker has been signing bills feverishly recently. Still acting within his two-week timeline, Walker has signed several bills of late that were already passed before the legislative session ended nearly two weeks ago. One such bill signed by Walker creates a wolf hunt in Wisconsin.

The Associated Press reports that the bill would establish a hunting and trapping season that would run from mid-October through the end of February. The Department of Natural Resources would be allowed to determine how many licenses to issue through a preference point system.

Wisconsin wolves came off the federal endangered species list last year. The state is now free to manage the wolves as they see fit.

Walker signed the bill during an appearance Monday morning and has also recently signed other bills that had wide ranging reactions.

According to the AP another bill Walker was to sign today was aimed at better concussion protection for high school athletes while they compete. Walker planned on signing that bill while at Lambeau Field.

Walker had also recently signed a bill that would ease restrictions on pier and dock construction and another aimed at changing the current teacher evaluation process.
