A trio of domestic violence bills have made their way through the Wisconsin State Assembly.

In an effort towards strengthening the state’s current laws on domestic violence, stalking and threatening to stalk would qualify as domestic abuse.

Republican Rep. Andre Jacque is heading all three of the sponsored proposals that spur from a shooting that happened last year when a woman was killed at a Brookfield spa by her estranged husband. All three proposals passed on bipartisan votes

According to the AP, officers would now need to file reports within their district attorney’s office, explaining their actions whenever an arrest isn’t made, in response to domestic violence calls.
