On July 2, the Assembly Speaker's Task Force on Adoption held a public hearing in Green Bay. The committee heard testimony from Joan Delabreau, vice-chair of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin, who urged careful consideration of adoption law changes in regards to their impact on the Indian Child Welfare Act. "A worthy goal like identifying ways to shorten the timeline for adoption can without due scrutiny result in minimizing the rights of Indian Tribes." Delabreau described how Wisconsin's Safe Haven Law affected the Indian Child Welfare Act rights of tribes and its members.
