  • Senate lawmakers voted on whether to concur with House Amendments to Substitute Senate Bill 5066, which would create a standard for a peace officer’s duty to intervene when it comes to a fellow officer’s actions.
  • The Senate voted in concurrence with the House 31-18, which now sends the legislation to the Governor’s office, for an opportunity to be signed into law.
