Pertinent Current Proposed Legislation

ILEAS is involved in three pieces of proposed legislation in the current General Assembly session. The first is a funding bill that MABAS and ILEAS have both submitted and are supporting.  The bill is HB5647 sponsored by Representatives Elaine Nekritz and Donald Moffitt.  The companion bill in the Senate is SB2592 and is sponsored by Senator Pam Althoff. This bill adds $3 to the license plate registration fee dedicated for homeland security.  Approximately one dollar each goes to law enforcement, fire and emergency management statewide mutual aid organzations.  If successful, the funds generated by this bill would be directed towards necessary programs for which Federal Funds cannot be used.  for example, it would include capital replacement on specialized team vehicles like Mobile Command Posts, Bearcats, ITECS trailers, interoprable radios, etc.  

The second bill is SB2588 sponsored by Senator Antonio Munoz.  This bill proposes a training exception for the Freedom from Drone Surveillance Act.  There are currenlty six exceptions to the prohibition of drones for law enforcement.  The original law did not provide an exception for training.
