MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison alumni group has sent an email to parents of current students telling them how to lobby on a bill that would allow concealed weapons in campus building.
The UW Alumni Association sent the message Friday morning. The email tells parents about the bill and how UW System leaders oppose it. The message doesn't explicitly ask parents to lobby against the measure but encourages families to discuss campus safety and the impact the legislation might have on learning.
The message then points parents to a page on the association's website that says the university needs support. The page helps users contact legislators.
The Republican-authored bill is sitting in the Assembly's universities committee and the Senate's judiciary committee. Neither panel has held a public hearing on the measure.
