The police “reform” bill HB163 has been refiled as HB3653.
This was a political trick done so that all the witness slips filed in opposition to the orginal bill, almost 20,000 at this time, will not be associated with the new bill. That means that now more than ever it is important to call and email your elected officials and voice your opposition to this bill.
While this bill is about police issues, with the unfunded mandates it puts on local governments and changes to collective bargaining, it could have far reaching negative consequences on all municipal employees.
For the most timely updates, please follow ICOPs on social media.
Please continue the excellent work you all have been doing in opposition to this bill.
