MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Assembly has passed a bill that would allow drivers to show proof of insurance electronically.
The measure passed without debate Tuesday. It previously passed the Senate and now heads to Gov. Scott Walker for his consideration.
Drivers in Wisconsin are required to carry liability insurance and have proof of that insurance if they're pulled over. Motorists could be fined if they don't have that proof.
The bipartisan bill would allow drivers to show proof of coverage by using their smartphones or other electronic device.
