MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Assembly is set to consider a Republican bill that would exempt shooting ranges from any new local ordinances.

Shooting ranges already are exempt from any zoning ordinances limiting noise and any nuisance actions related to noise. Under the bill, ranges would continue to be exempt from noise-related ordinances and nuisance actions as well as any ordinances enacted after the range is built.

The proposal also would protect range owners, customers and employees from civil liability from shooting at the range.

The Senate passed the bill 19-13 last month. The Assembly is set to take it up Tuesday. Approval would send the measure to Gov. Scott Walker.
