What's Next?

After the successful passage of Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin through the legislature (twice!), we’re looking forward to the next steps in making Marsy’s Law a reality for Wisconsin crime victims. In order to be added to the Wisconsin State Constitution, Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin will need to pass a statewide referendum next April.
