White collar crime registration

The House Law Enforcement committee passed H-B 378, which authorizes the attorney general’s office to set up a registry for convicted fraudsters, much like a sex offender registry.

The bill goes to the full House for debate.

Search and seizure amendments

The Senate unanimously passed a bill that requires law enforcement to get a warrant if they want to see through someone’s walls.

Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Saratoga Springs, said a new radar technology used by law enforcement allows police to see through people’s walls. The bill requires another vote in the Senate before going to the House.
