Wisconsin is the only state where a [DUI] first offense is treated like a traffic ticket with no chance of jail time

Wisconsin is also one of the few states that allows parents to purchase alcohol for their children to consume in their presence

Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle gets it.

He signed into law a bill that ensured there would be no confusion about last call when taverns adjusted their clocks for daylight savings time in March. The Legislature made it clear that bartenders could keep serving after closing time sprang forward.

Doyle also signed a bill, behind unanimous support of the Legislature, allowing such retailers as grocery stores and liquor stores to promote a particular beer brand or special with free samples.
