Brad Klippert Watch

I'm just getting started with this so the first thing is to get the lay of the land.

Brad has positions on the Human Services Committee and the Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Committee.

Here's the blurb on the purview of Human Services:
The House Human Services Committee considers issues relating to persons with developmental disabilities, adults in need of general assistance, adults in need of drug and alcohol treatment, vocational rehabilitation, and juvenile offenders. The committee also considers mental health issues relating to civil commitment and mentally ill offenders in the criminal justice system. In addition, the committee considers programs and operations affiliated with certain state facilities and institutions, including those under the purview of the Department of Corrections, the Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration, and the Division of Developmental Disabilities.

Here's the blurb on Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness:
The House Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Committee considers issues relating to law enforcement agencies, crime prevention, penalties and sentencing for criminal offenders, registration and civil commitment of sex offenders, and state and local government preparedness to respond to public emergencies, including the interoperability of emergency communications systems.

In the future I will try to examine how well Brad functions with these groups.
