HB 1139 would establish a work group to study the implementation of SB 6476 (passed in 2010) throughout the state and report its findings and recommendations. The bill identifies the make up and duties of the work group, and directs the workgroup to compile its findings and recommendations into a report that would be provided to the governor and appropriate committees of the legislature by June 30 of each year. The workgroup would expire on June 30, 2017.
HB 1139 was heard and passed in the House Public Safety Committee, sent to Rules, and passed by the House. The bill was referred to Senate Law and Justice, was not scheduled for a hearing and therefore is dead.
