DNA Bill 

Assembly Bill 274

Yesterday, the Assembly passed my and Senator Darling's Bill, AB 274 relating to submission of human biological specimens to the state crime laboratories.

Under current law, a person who is on probation, extended supervision, or parole in another state who moves to Wisconsin and who will be supervised by the Department of Corrections is required to provide a human biological specimen to the state crime laboratories for DNA analysis if one of the following applies: 1) he or she was placed under supervision before January 1, 2000, for a crime that is comparable to first or second degree sexual assault in Wisconsin, or 2) he or she was placed under supervision on or after January 1, 2000, for a crime that DOC determines would constitute a felony if committed by an adult in Wisconsin.
This bill requires any person who was placed on probation, extended supervision, or parole in another state on or after April 1, 2015, who moves to Wisconsin and who will be supervised by DOC to provide a human biological specimen to the state crime laboratories for DNA analysis, irrespective of the crime for which he or she was placed on probation, extended supervision, or parole in the other state.
