MADISON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Drunk drivers who cause injuries will have to spend at least 30 days in jail under a bill signed by Governor Scott Walker yesterday. The Republican governor privately signed more than five dozen new laws -- many of which passed in the final days of the just-completed legislative session.
Walker approved the so-called "I'm sorry" bill, in which medical professionals can apologize to patients' families for their mistakes without having it used against them in malpractice suits.
Other new laws prohibit employers from asking workers and job candidates for the passwords to their social media accounts. Unmanned drones cannot record people where they expect privacy -- and police cannot use drones to obtain evidence without a warrant. And the governor reduced the numbers of suspects having to give their D-N-A to police when they're arrested, but before they're convicted.
