Sanctuary City Bill Left Pending In Late Night Hearing

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.
