MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Assembly is poised to pass a bill that would allow landlords to throw out property evicted tenants leave behind.

The chamber was scheduled to take up the measure Tuesday afternoon. Approval would send the proposal on to the state Senate.

Under the bill, if an evicted tenant leaves anything behind the landlord may dispose of it in any way he or she sees fit. The measure also would eliminate provisions in current law that require landlords to notify tenants they don't intend to store property left behind in evictions.

Opponents contend the measure could set up violent confrontations between evicted tenants and landlords.
