Sen. Don Ipson (R)


SB 173 (Disrupting Legislative or Official Meetings)

Libertas Institute opposes this bill.

This bill creates a new crime for disrupting or disturbing an official meeting or engaging in any disorderly conduct in such a meeting. This crime increases with repeated instances.

Libertas opposes this bill. This bill is too subjective as to what it means to "disrupt or disturb" an official meeting, and there is already a crime (a lower one) for disorderly conduct that can be used.
