02/14/19 -- HB 185 -- Integrates the AMBER Alert system into law enforcement systems

Bill Number: 
HB 185
Bill Purpose: 
Integrates the AMBER Alert system into law enforcement systems
Date of Vote: 
02/14/19
My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HB 185, introduced by Representative Curtis Trent (Republican - District 133) adds some improvements to the oversight of the AMBER alert system, as well as requires it to be integrated into systems that law enforcement already use.  This will allow for quicker and more widespread AMBER Alerts, which will improve the effectiveness of the system.

I saw no issues with this bill.  There's little point in having an alert system that isn't easy for law enforcement to actually utilize, so minor adjustments like this that will make it better are a good idea.  I voted yes.  It passed easily.
