MILWAUKEE (AP) – A Republican lawmaker who sponsored a sweeping landlord-tenant bill would himself benefit from one of its provisions.  A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report says 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 says 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 says in a statement there’s no conflict of interest.
