NAGE Lobbies To Increase Security At MA Court Houses

NAGE Lobbies To Increase Security At MA Court Houses 

House Bill 1518, which seeks to expand power of arrest for court officers in areas surrounding the courts and court houses, is gaining traction. The bill, which is in its third reading, was voted favorably out of the House Judiciary Committee and will likely be brought before the House for a vote in the coming weeks.

NAGE National President David J. Holway took action earlier and wrote a letters of support to the chairmen of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees urging them to act swiftly on the legislation. The letters can be found here. Trial Court and NAGE have been working for months with the legislature to pass this common sense bill.

Local 458 President Dorianna Mederos commented on the legislation. “This is good public policy that protects our members and people who use the courts. Everyone benefits from this legislation.”

NAGE Trial Court will be working on keeping you up to date on this issue. Please check NAGE.org/trialcourt for updates and click the link below for the bill.
