Myth: This proposal is national legislation that isn’t right for Wisconsin.

Fact: Our proposal is unique to Wisconsin. Unlike other states that have passed different versions Marsy’s Law, Wisconsin is already a leader on victims’ rights after becoming the first state to adopt a Crime Victims’ Bill of Rights, and after passing a state constitutional amendment in 1993. Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin worked with Wisconsinites – victims, victim advocates, the Attorney General and his Office of Crime Victim Services, legislators, law enforcement, legal experts and others – to draft a unique Wisconsin solution based on how we can update our Constitution and improve our already strong victims’ rights laws. The rights Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin is fighting for are either currently in state statute and need to be elevated to our Constitution, or are in the Constitution and need to be clarified.
