Van Hollen Likes Proposed State Money
Governor Scott Walker along with Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen stopped in La Crosse this week to announce several crime prevention initiatives and the money to support them. The Walker budget includes three million dollars to expand GPS tracking for people on restraining orders
One of the big changes proposed involves collecting DNA samples from suspects upon arrest instead of just upon conviction. Van Hollen says six million of the new budget will help collect and process about 68 thousand DNA samples every year.
