MADISON, Wis. (WSAU-Wheeler News) - The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a Republican bill that would increase the penalties for stealing cable television.

Right now first-time cable theft is a civil violation punishable by up to $500 in forfeitures. The bill would make a first-time theft a misdemeanor punishable by up to $500 in fines and 30 days in jail.

The Assembly passed the measure on a voice vote Tuesday. It now goes to the state Senate.
