State Senate Passes Delinquent Library Account Bill

The State Senate unanimously voted to approve Senate Bill 466 on Tuesday, which allows a public library to provide a collections agency or law enforcement agency with  information about patrons who have delinquent accounts.  Under the bill, a delinquent account must total $50 before it can be referred to law enforcement.

The Assembly Committee on  Urban and Local Affairs recently passed the companion bill,   Assembly Bill 609, by a vote of 7-1. The bill can now be voted on by the full Assembly. 

Once the State Assembly passes this bill, it will go to Governor Walker for his signature.
