WI Bill Regarding Disclosure of Library Records

Update: The corresponding Senate bill is 214.
---------------
My Wisconsin Legislative Notifications account picked up this bill, AB-433, relating to the disclosure of library records to law enforcement officers.

LRB synopsis:

Under current law, public library records may not be disclosed to any person except in certain specified circumstances. This bill requires a public library to disclose to a law enforcement officer, upon his or her request, all records produced by a surveillance device, if the officer is investigating criminal conduct alleged to have occurred at the public library.

See the history and current status of the bill.
