State prepares for Sandra Bland Act to take effect
With a week and a half remaining before the Sandra Bland Act goes into effect, lawmakers met at the Texas State Capitol to discuss its implementation. The House Committee on County Affairs, chaired by Rep. Garnet Coleman, D-Houston, heard testimony from experts on three different panels. The groups — representing advocacy organizations, inmate health and safety, and law enforcement — offered recommendations and answered questions from state representatives.
