Hello everyone,

We are past the halfway point of the 2022 legislative session. Less than 60 days to go! Last week was not nearly as busy as the week before, but we were still able to make progress on CSPA priorities.

On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously referred HB 1150 to the Senate floor. HB 1150, that the CSPA supports, eliminates a defendant’s signature requirement on certain citations and is necessary for the Patrol to move to electronic citations. In talking to legislators, I have been stressing that in addition to being a good government bill – it streamlines how citations are transferred among and processed by the State Patrol, the Department of Revenue, and the Judicial Department – HB 1150 is also a trooper and motorist safety bill. Removing the signature requirement moves the Patrol closer to electronic citations that will reduce the amount of time troopers and motorists spend on the side of the road. On Friday morning, the Senate passed HB 1150 on second reading and should pass it on third reading today. Since the Senate amended it, HB 1150 will have to go back to the House for consideration of the Senate amendment and repassage before it can go to the Governor for his consideration. Only 59 days until the General Assembly is required to adjourn sine die.
