Deadly force bill stalls in Senate but could still move later in session

The Senate bill, SB 5073, modifying the criminal liability standard for law enforcement officers using deadly force failed it make it out of the Senate Ways and Means Committee by Feb. 24, rendering the bill dead. However, the Legislature has many ways to revive bills previously thought dead. Some legislators have already suggested that the bill will be linked to the budget. AWC is supportive of the bill and will continue to monitor the situation.
