#S10072: S.B. 1070 Resolution, Action Item from Senator Dominick San Angelo

 

At the last Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate meeting, Sen. San Angelo brought up the senate S.B. 1070 resolution, first written last spring. San Angelo called for help to rewrite the resolution due to loaded language when referring to police and the progression of the bill changing its effect on students. He cited complaints from University of Arizona Police Department as one of the reasons behind the rewrite.
