Two key initiatives from one of Lubbock’s state lawmakers are making their way through the legislative system.

The pieces of legislation by District 84 State Representative John Frullo continue to move through house committees.

House Bill 2268 was heard before the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence last week. The bill allows Texas to join other states in making sure law enforcement agencies are able to obtain critical evidence when criminals use the internet to commit crimes.

House Bill 1677 was heard before the House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety, and addresses the attempted abduction of children and identifying missing children who are at high risk of being lured into human trafficking.

“Last session, we passed Alicia’s Law to give law enforcement more tools to stop perpetrators from committing crimes against children on the internet,” said Frullo. “This session, we are continuing that work.”
