Legislative Update: Anti-police, flavored tobacco ban bills scheduled for Wednesday committees

Some controversial bills are scheduled to be heard in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, including the fast-tracked Democrat bill, H.B. 156, which would demonize peace officers by adding redundant law regarding sexual contact with someone in custody. This provision is already state statute, which makes this bill needless. 

An anti-freedom flavored tobacco ban bill will be heard in committees as well. Here is the information you need to know:

HOUSE APPROPRIATIONS AND FINANCE COMMITTEE 
PATRICIA A. LUNDSTROM, CHAIR – Wednesday, March 3, 2021 – 1:30 p.m. 

H.B. 156 SEX CRIMES BY PEACE OFFICERS by Rep. Brittney Barreras (D-Bernalillo) and Rep. Roger Montoya (-Colfax, Mora, Rio Arriba & San Miguel) is a repetitive bill that seeks to duplicate laws that are already on the books barring law enforcers from sexual crimes. The bill maligns police as “rapists” and tries to erode public confidence in law enforcement – BAD

H.B. 205PROHIBIT SALE OF FLAVORED TOBACCO PRODUCTS sponsored by Rep. Joanne Ferrary (D-Doña Ana) and Rep. Liz Thomson (D-Bernalillo) – BAD
