Capital City Sunday: Sen. Fitzgerald, Rep. Kitchens & Wisconsin Professional Police Association

MADISON (WKOW) — Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) is reaffirming his commitment to the pro-life movement after making statements over concerns of restrictive abortion laws in other states.

Fitzgerald said abortion laws being passed in Alabama goes far, and the law puts the state “in a different place.”

Fitzgerald also clarifies his statements after implying he doesn’t want to see Roe v. Wade overturned. 

Representative Joel Kitchens (R-Sturgeon Bay) called his proposal a pathway to reduce unplanned pregnancys by allowing individuals to walk into a local pharmacy to get birth control. He also discusses the on-going impacts of the trade war as a member of the Agriculture Committee.

Plus, a new poll by the Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) explains why most people in the state want police to wear body camera’s but only a few departments are using them.

Executive Director Jim Palmer explains why it’s too costly for some departments and how much of an impact they’re having in communities.
