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.
