Governor Scott Walker signed a bill today (Monday) creating a new council to fight homelessness in Wisconsin. The measure passed the Legislature unanimously. The new law will bring together eight agencies to target homelessness through a coordinating council to be chaired by Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch. It marks the first time in state history that a coordinated effort to combat homelessness is created under state law. The bill is the final of a package of four enacted into law this year that are focused on the problem of homelessness.
