revised amendment to item 59 (Jan 23, 2020)

Post by Leslie Pool » Thu Jan 23, 2020 1:11 pm

Colleagues, here's the revised amendment language for item 59 that I'll offer later this afternoon. Thanks to Emily Gerrick for collaborating with my staff to craft the new text for the Be It Resolved section. The two items are ...

1. Add "misdemeanor" after "low level" throughout the document, and

2. Add the following paragraph at line 112, page 6:
“BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: Nothing in this resolution shall be construed as intending to violate or preempt state law or to limit the ability of the Austin Police Department to access THC concentration testing or pursue enforcement action in high priority or felony level cannabis-related offenses.”
