The good thing is, the bill is very short. The bad thing is, it is actually too short. While trying to trick people into believing you are someone you are not should be punishable as fraud, this bill simply states "whoever impersonates a fire fighter with intent to mislead others into believing that the person is actually a fire fighter is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor." Therefore, a good neighbor trying to put out a fire could technically be a criminal under this vague wording, because "fire fighter" is not defined any further to my knowledge. This results in LESS LIBERTY.
The bill was introduced by Representatives Bies, Brooks, Kaufert, Kerkman, Kleefisch, LeMahieu, Molepske Jr, Nygren, A. Ott, Petersen, Petryk, Spanbauer, Strachota and Stroebel.
