Political Watch, 11th of October

Published

on

Welcome to Political Watch for the 11th of October 2021, the government has been up to a small count of things this week, the Legislature held it’s 4th session and representatives were seen in a number of places doing things like community work/engagement or simply just visiting.

Legislation Watch

H.R. 044 – The Protection Under Urgent Threat Act was introduced by Becks Lawson this week

  • This bill creates a system where a law enforcement ‘official’ is able to enact a temporary emergency restraining order to protect a vulnerable victim. 
  • These temporary emergency restraining orders last for two weeks and don’t require a court case to enact these orders. A law enforcement ‘official’ and a Judge are able to enact these, it’s not clear if they are both needed jointly to enact a restraining order or if both are needed. 
  • One of two factors are established as a requirement to have an emergency restraining order applied:
  1. There is a relevant past criminal history on the alleged attacker
  2. The victim can produce a credible threat on the part of the alleged attacker
  • This bill has not been voted on.

Bills 040-044 have not been voted on, Bill 034 also hasn’t been voted on.

The Results are in from the first public Weazel News PolitiPoll
