New Option for Proof of Auto InsuranceSubmitted: 05/15/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Drivers would get another option to prove they have insurance under a bill passed by the state Assembly.

The measure would allow drivers to show proof of insurance electronically.

The bill already made it through the senate, and will now head to Governor Scott Walker for his consideration.

Drivers in Wisconsin are required to carry liability insurance.

They also need to have proof of that insurance if they're pulled over.

If they don't have proof, they can be fined.

The bipartisan bill would allow drivers to show proof of coverage by using their smartphones or other electronic device.

RHINELANDER - A Northwoods man believes our early winter has laid the foundation for early kite skiing. The combination of snow and wind gives Mark Collar the chance to use his skis and his kite.
