Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law prohibits a person from carrying a firearm in certain buildings
owned or leased by the state or a local government if properly posted. This bill allows
the state or a local government to post vehicles that are part of a public mass
transportation system. A person who carries a firearm on a posted vehicle is subject
to a Class B forfeiture, which is the same penalty as carrying a firearm into a building
that is posted by the state or a local government.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
AB258,1 4Section 1. 943.13 (1m) (c) 4m. of the statutes is created to read:
