Officials want comments on new law requiring police to collect racial data from traffic offenders
State Justice officials want to get people's comments on a new law that requires police to collect racial data when they stop traffic offenders.
The law takes effect statewide in 2011, and it was passed in the state budget earlier this year. Listening sessions will begin next Wednesday in La Crosse.
They'll also be held Nov. 12 in Green Bay, and Milwaukee on the 18th.
Other sessions are planned in northern Wisconsin Dec. 1, and southeast Wisconsin Dec. 3.
