Warrants And War Memorials
President Bush may be calling for more forces in Iraq, but members of the General Assembly are already planning a memorial to honor military casualties who have been lost during the “war on terrorism.”
Meanwhile, a bill that allows law enforcement officials to receive and apply for warrants electronically was passed unanimously by the House Judiciary Committee and will go back to the floor.Here’s a brief listing of the bills:
A War On Terror Fallen Heroes Memorial…And A Line To Colorado State Individual Income Tax Return Forms Whereby Individual Taxpayers May Make A Voluntary Contribution To The War On Terror Fallen Heroes Memorial Construction Fund
Rep. Balmer (R-Centennial), Sen. Kopp (R-Littleton)
Establishes a commission to accept donations for the memorial and allows a designation line to appear on income tax return forms for donations to the memorial.
The Use Of Electronic Transfers In the Process
Rep. Don Marostica (R-Loveland)
Permits applications for search and arrest warrants to be transferred electronically. Allows courts to issue warrants electronically.
Rep. Marostica alluded to the warrant bill when he talked to Colorado Confidential in December.
