The House voted on a dozen bills in its first hour of crossover week.
Speaker Joe Hackney called for a recess at 6 p.m. so a heavy volume of committee reports could be read into the record. Bills voted on before the recess covered a range of subjects. Here are some highlights of bills that cleared the House.
HB 266: Requires the state to collect and publish statistics on how many people are killed after run-ins with law-enforcement.
The bill adds to the duties of the state Division of Criminal Statistics, part of the Justice Department. The division would have to collect statistics about the use of deadly force by law enforcement officers.
HB 439: Requires the State Health Plan to pay for ambulance services run by cities or counties.
HB 672: Requires more transparency for mental health providers. The bill requires certain local management entities to report twice a year on how they are spending money. The entity must also hold a public hearing once a year.
