HB 3133, the statutory companion to HJR 25 was intended to place uniform statutory requirements if law enforcement were to use roadblocks (assuming HJR 25 passed).

Yet, as we testified, HB 3133 did not put any specific requirements into state law to curtail the scope and use of roadblocks. Instead, it simply authorized the use of roadblocks if law enforcement followed guidelines published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, the guidelines only identified issues for law enforcement to consider when implementing roadblocks but did not impose specific requirements or limitations. HB 3133 was assigned to the House Judiciary Committee and we testified against it during the public hearing. Fortunately, HB 3133 did not move further.
