Summary: HB 2827 would vary the penalty for burglary of a vehicle based on the amount of tangible personal property lost. This bill would make the range from a Class B misdemeanor for a loss of less than $500 to a first degree felony for a loss of $200,000 or more.
Analysis: HB 2827 would create varying punishment based on the magnitude of the offense. While we agree that this is a good practice, HB 2827 does not fall under our liberty principles, and we remain neutral on HB 2827.
