Sticking Point

Record #:
Both the Senate and House of Representatives passed House Bill 850, legislation which allows law enforcement officers to ask suspects if they are carrying any needles. The measure is an attempt to protect police officers from being harmed by potentially dirty needles. This legislation was deemed necessary with 1/3 of the state's law enforcement officers affected and 28% reporting being stuck by a hidden needle multiple times.
