Transcript

This is a transcript of the video clips in which this bill is discussed.

WHAT THE HOUSE AMENDMENT DOES IS IT DELETES A LINE IN THE BILL THAT ACTUALLY STATED THAT THE CAMPUS SECURITY AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT NEEDED TO SPECIFY WHO HAD THE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY IN AN INVESTIGATION, A SEXUAL ASSAULT INVESTIGATION ON CAMPUS. THE ASSOCIATION OF CAMPUS SECURITY AND ALSO THE ASSOCIATION OF CHIEFS OF POLICE ASKED THAT THAT LINE BE DELETED BECAUSE THE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY IS ALREADY OUTLINED IN MANY OTHER DOCUMENTS AND LAWS, SO THAT LINE IS DELETED AND THE BILL NOW EMPHASIZES THE FACT THAT SHARING OF INFORMATION IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE SUCCESSFUL CONCLUSION OF INVESTIGATIONS. SO WITH THAT EXPLANATION, I TO ASK THAT THE AMENDMENT PASS.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS SHALL THE AMENDMENT BE AGREED TO. ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WILL SAY AYE.
