Summary: Critics assert that the lack of clarity regarding the territory of a municipality creates an impossible situation for police and courts in determining the exact location of an incident for jurisdiction purposes. HB 1178 would clarify the territorial limits of a municipality by including an entire segment of highway in the territory.
Analysis: HB 1178 does not fall under any of our liberty principles. We remain neutral on HB 1178.
