MILWAUKEE — A Republican lawmaker who sponsored a sweeping landlord-tenant bill would himself benefit from one of its provisions.

A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report (http://bit.ly/14Zv1ae ) 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.
