State investigating former Clay Arsenal landlord
As we wrapped up the last six months of work, one of the most talked about issues was the state budget, but equally important are many measures we passed that may be of interest to you, some of which have already been signed by Governor Lamont.
In 2013 both the House and Senate unanimously passed the Trust Act, setting conditions for state and local law enforcement authorities for voluntarily cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials seeking to detain and deport undocumented immigrants.
I am thrilled to share with you that last night, the House passed HB 7160, An Act Increasing Voter Access. Besides automatic voter registration through the Department of Motor Vehicles, the bill restores fairness to our democratic system and gives people who have been incarcerated the right to vote after serving their time, as many other states allow.
