Capital City Sunday: AG Kaul, PFAS testing, Pardon Citizens Assistance Program

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) -- Shootings and threats last week at high schools in Wisconsin shook the state, and now, it's causing a new debate over how to prevent violence.

Lawmakers on both sides are supportive of increasing mental health services in schools but Attorney General Josh Kaul said the legislature also needs to focus on how to penalize students who make a threat.

Plus, PFAS contaminates are at the forefront in Wisconsin. Amy Barrilleaux, with Madison Water Utility, discusses how the city is taking action to test PFAS levels in drinking water, even though they're not required to.

The Pardon Citizens Assistance Program is helping the recently pardoned build a better future. Organizers Masood Akhtar and Ed Wall talk about how some recently pardon individuals are running into roadblocks when trying to find a job and financial security.

If you’re interested in helping support this program, or if you know someone who needs assistance with pardons, you can contact the group members:
