MILWAUKEE - A Republican lawmaker who sponsored a sweeping landlord-tenant bill would himself benefit from one of its provisions.
A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report said the bill's lead sponsor is state Rep. Duey Stroebel of Saukville.
The bill's provision would eliminate the landlord registration program. That's a program that requires all commercial property owners to record ownership information with the city Department of Neighborhood Services.
Stroebel owns a building on Milwaukee's east side that's valued at $635,500.
Art Dahlberg is the commissioner of the Department of Neighborhood Services. He said the program helps landlords manage property risk, and it also gives emergency officials a quick way to reach landlords.
Stroebel declined to be interviewed by the Journal Sentinel but said in a statement there's no conflict of interest.
