State representative Scott Suder is sponsoring a bi-partisan bill that will allow courts to make repeat domestic abusers wear a satellite tracking device. Read more from the Marshfield News Herald.

In a time of major budget reform and a looming deficit, Suder said it's key that the perpetrators pay for the device and any other costs. It's estimated to cost about $200 for one person to be equipped with the tracking system....
