The Wisconsin Senate has voted to jack up penalties for carjackings, after a Milwaukee home inspector was killed in a recent car theft attempt. Six Democrats joined all Republicans in supporting the higher penalties, but other Democrats said it would add prison costs with no guarantees that the crackdown would work. Also Wednesday, senators sent two more bills to Governor Scott Walker to crack down on opioid and heroin abuse — measures that would allow involuntary treatment commitments for habitual drug abusers, and preventing revocations of probation and parole for abusers who seek help. The Senate also voted 28-5 in favor of dropping some accountability requirements for voucher schools, as most say the new state school report cards provide the same transparency. And the Senate voted to close state offices on Veterans Day, making Wisconsin the last state to do so.
