Electronic Warrant Bill Passes
A bill that allows members of law enforcement to receive and apply for warrants electronically was passed unanimously in the House today, and read for the first time in the Senate.
The vote was almost unanimous, with Rep. Mike Cerbo (D-Denver) casting the only dissenting vote. The measure was introduced by freshman legislator Don Marostica (R-Loveland), who hinted at the bill in December when talking with Colorado Confidential. Senator John Morse (D-Colorado Springs), a former police chief , has also attached his name to the measure, and it appears that the bill will likely become law.
From the earlier interview with Rep. Marostica before session, with his own words on the bill:
“So, that’s one thing I’ve been asked to do by the police department. To carry a bill just to update the statues that we already have to include electronic signatures.”
