Feb 17 Action Alert for AB 585- Seclusion and Restraint Bill
AB 585- The Seclusion and Restraint Bill is expected to be voted on in the full Assembly on Thursday, February 20th. These common-sense changes to the law create more transparency in reporting by requiring annual reporting to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and enhanced reporting to parents through individual incident reports. This bill has been supported by advocacy organizations, public school organizations, and the Department of Public Instruction.
Please call your Representative (Legislative hotline 1-800-362-9472) and ask them to pass AB 585 which provides technical fixes to Wisconsin’s already existing law.
