MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Assembly has approved a Republican bill that would protect shooting range employees and users from any shooting-related liability.

The measure also would exempt ranges from any ordinances enacted the range is built.

The Senate passed the bill on a 19-13 last month. The Assembly approved the bill 65-30 Tuesday and sent it on to Gov. Scott Walker.

Rep. Fred Kessler, a Milwaukee Democrat, was the only lawmaker to speak about the bill. He argued the bill would leave people hurt by stray range bullets no legal recourse. He called the bill risky.
