The House State Affairs Committee worked late into the night as witness after witness came forward to testify on proposed sanctuary city related legislation. But proponents of stricter anti-immigration laws did not get the victory they wanted. After nearly 7 hours of testimonies, HB 12, a bill that would abolish sanctuary cities and HB 183, an Arizona style immigration bill that would require police officer’s to check immigration status, were left pending. More in-depth reporting soon to come.
