Wednesday April 23, 2014, Governor Walker signed Senate Bill 504 (SB 504) into law. SB 504, now known as 2013 Wisconsin Act 337, was brought to my attention by Children’s Court Judge Christopher Foley. Parents not taking termination of parental rights proceedings seriously and failing to cooperate with simple court orders delayed timely permanent placement for many children. Act 337 helps to solve the problem while still assuring fair procedures for parents engaged in the process.
Thursday April 24, 2014, Governor Walker signed into law Senate Bill 499 (SB 499), now known as 2013 Wisconsin Act 380.
