Senate Welcomes Bobby Dale Earnhardt and Passes 4 Bills

A total of four bills were passed in the Senate today and were moved to the House for consideration. Of those passed was Senate Bill 418, which would amend the qualifications required to serve on the Parole Board, and Senate Bill 409, which would sentence minors attempting to use a fake ID to buy alcohol to community service instead of jail time.

Several bills were read on second reading including Senate Bill 166, which would make the disarming of a correctional officer a felony, and Senate Bill 4107, which would provide for online training of firefighters as well as provide proper safety equipment.
