Brown County seeks to keep welfare fraud money

Brown County officials and three state lawmakers on Monday will announce a proposal to cut welfare fraud by letting counties use some of the money they recover for police and prosecutors.

A 9 a.m. announcement is planned at the Brown County Sheriff's Department in Bellevue.

County Executive Troy Streckenbach said the proposal, if approved, would enable Brown County to fund two deputies' positions and an assistant district attorney's post. Currently, Wisconsin counties must return money they recover to the federal government, something Streckenbach said discourages some local governments from pursuing welfare fraud cases.

State reps. Eric Genrich, Andre Jacque and Chad Weininger are expected to attend the announcement.
