TAB helps advance law enforcement records bill, fights defense on other measures
Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
The Texas Senate has sent a bill to the House that would make public the records of a campus police department at a private college or university. SB 308, by Sen. John Whitmire, D-Houston, one of four TAB newsroom legislative priority bills, was adopted by a 31-0 vote. Rep. Garnet Coleman, D-Houston, will now shepherd the measure through the lower chamber. Coleman filed the House companion bill, HB 2060, which is in the House Higher Education Committee. TAB, the Texas Press Association and Freedom of Information of Texas are hoping for a House hearing on SB 308 very soon.
