UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Starting tomorrow it could be three times as expensive for able-bodied Wisconsinites to speed up their errands by parking in spaces for the disabled. Governor Scott Walker signed a bill yesterday raising the minimum fine from $50 to $150.

The bill was among 55 the Republican Walker signed in private ceremonies in his Madison office. The maximum penalty of $300 won't change.

Also, building owners can no longer escape their obligation to let the disabled park close to their front doors. Building owners and tenants with at least 26 parking spaces must reserve disabled spaces -- or they'll be fined $150 to $300.
