Summary: HB 2280 would correct ambiguity in current law regarding an attorney who acts as a surety and employs an individual convicted of a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude or a felony.
Analysis: HB 2280 does not create new laws or penalties. Rather, it clarifies ambiguity within existing statute. To the extent that clarifying ambiguity may allow the law to be appropriately observed and to be applied more evenly across jurisdictions, we support HB 2280.
