HB 151 Lite?

Rep. Aaron Peña still harbors hopes of softening HB 151 by Truitt, which would make burglary of a vehicle a state jail felony. April 19, he says, will be crunch time to decide whether to accept his HB 1324, which would make such thefts a felony only on the third offense. Testimony in committee said the main problem came from repeat offenders, anyway, not first timers.

Good legislative blogging, Rep.
Peña, thanks for keeping us up to date.
