Stealing cable TV would be crime under new bill passed

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Stealing cable TV service would become a crime under a bill passed by the Wisconsin Assembly. 

The measure was sent to the Senate on a voice vote. 

First-time cable theft is currently a non-criminal violation with up to $500 in fines.  The bill would make it a criminal misdemeanor, with up to 30-days in jail and $500 in fines. 

Also this afternoon, the Assembly agreed to give wounded military veterans discounts on sporting licenses. 

Combined licenses for hunting, fishing, and trapping would cost $10 for Wisconsin Purple Heart recipients, instead of the current $165.  Out-of-state Purple Heart winners would get a big break, too, paying 161-dollars instead of the current $600. 

Out-of-state recipients would pay the in-state prices for gun-deer and fishing licenses. 

The Senate okayed the measure in June. 

The bill returns there for consideration of an Assembly amendment.
