Walker signs 62 bills into law

Posted Tuesday, April 8, 2014 --- 6:10 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Banning revenge porn, restricting drone use and allowing doctors to say "I'm sorry" without fear of legal liability are among 62 bills Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law.

Walker signed the bills privately on Tuesday.

The Legislature completed its work for the year last week, leaving Walker with dozens of bills to either sign or veto. He did not announce any vetoes Tuesday.

One measure creates a new crime for disseminating sexually explicit images without the consent of the person depicted, also known as revenge porn.

Another restricts the use of unmanned drones in areas where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy.

A third allows doctors and other health care providers to apologize to patients without worrying about whether the statements could be used against them in court.
