Wisconsin's New OWI Law, Wisconsin Lawyer June 2010, State Bar of Wisconsin

The legislature responded by passing 2009 Wisconsin Act 100, which takes effect July 1, 2010.4The media labeled the law as taking a firm stance against drunk driving by enforcing harsher penalties.5 However, a deeper analysis reveals that the new law encourages jurisdictions to consider and determine if a well-monitored treatment program, combined with a period of supervision and a reduced jail sentence, will be a more effective means to deter recidivism.
