WI Lawmakers Delay Ref or Umpire Decision

WI Lawmakers Delay Ref or Umpire Decision

Democrats at the statehouse last week pushed back on the plan to make it a misdemeanor to harass or intimidate a ref or umpire. Democratic state Rep. Sylvia Ortiz-Velez says there are already laws to protect sports officials. The plan’s author, Republican Alex Dallman, says angry fans are ruining high school and youth sports across the state.
