Public Safety Package Debated

The Missouri Senate debated today a public safety package. The legislation includes provisions about a ban on police chokeholds, removal of a requirement for Kansas City police to live within city limits, and changes to conditions of release for bail. Senator Tony Luetkemeyer of northwest Missouri’s Parkville is carrying the House bill.

 

The Senate ended up setting the bill aside, but it could make a return. The regular legislative session ends May 14.
