There’s now a proposed law that would ban the kind of secret microphones that were installed in Green Bay.
State Rep. David SteSteffen and State Senator Eric Wimberger, both from Green Bay, yesterday introduced legislation that would spell out just when and how state and local officials can record people. The legislation comes after Green Bay’s mayor secretly installed microphones inside city hall. The mayor claimed the microphones were legal, and part of a security system. The new legislation would require cities, counties, or state governments to warn people when their conversations are being recorded.
