Wisconsin state Rep. Steve Doyle on La Crosse law enforcement civilian review board, priorities remaining in state Legislature



FILE - Wisconsin state Assembly Rep. Steve Doyle in the WIZM studio on Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2022, for La Crosse Talk PM.

Wisconsin state Assembly Rep. and La Crosse County board member Steve Doyle joins La Crosse Talk PM on Tuesday to discuss the details of a civilian review board of law enforcement, the state Legislature’s leftover priorities as its off the rest of the year and new voting maps.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

Doyle represents the 94th Assembly District, which will change to some extent and we talked about those changes and how representatives can best get to know their new constituents.

Before that, however, we complained about priorities the state could and should tackle if it were still in session, but the Assembly adjourned last week for the rest of the year, while the state Senate works one more day next month.

In the second half of the show, Doyle breaks down what the Civilian Review Board is all about. It was passed recently by the La Crosse County Board and will be more of what Doyle calls a liaison between people and law enforcement.

    I urge people to read the report from the committee that recommended this new Civilian Review Board. Steve Doyle was not honest about what that report say. The first sentence if the report says this is about “racially marginzed (BIPOC) communities. It also says this is a reaction to the George Floyd murder in Minneapolis. They passed this even though no money was appropriated in the 2024 budget. The report states that county staff hours will be used, but the fiscal note on the resolution says “ no fiscal impact”. Steve Doyle is supporting this new Civilian Review Board. Google La Crosse County Study Committee on Policing.
