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.

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