      MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that prohibits people from advertising their children for adoption online.Current state law prohibits advertising children for adoption through a range of mediums, including newspapers, radio and television but doesn't address the Internet.The bill also requires parents who want to transfer their custodial powers to someone else for more than a year to go through a court review and prohibits custody transfers that don't comply with the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children.Walker signed the bipartisan measure on Wednesday.
