CIOGC is working with the community to support the passing of SB 58 (Drug Test Police Shooting) and HB 426 (Immigration Safety Zone). Both bills are up for hearings on Tuesday, February 7 and Wednesday, February 8. The legislators’ goal in sponsoring SB 58 bill Provides that each law enforcement agency shall adopt a written policy regarding drug testing following an officer-involved shooting. The second bill, HB 426, is related to immigration and “Provides that schools, medical treatment and health care facilities, and places of worship may not grant access to State and local law enforcement agencies …. to investigate, detain, or arrest individuals for violation of federal immigration law. More on the bills and hearing can be found on www.ilga.gov.
