Colorado State House
The Committee chairman has scheduled a hearing for HB13-1045. The bill is in the State, Veterans and Military Afffairs committee. While we know it’s going to be tough to get the bill out of committee, their willingness to give it a hearing should be thanked and encouraged.
BACKGROUND ARTICLES AND INFORMATION ON NDAA “INDEFINITE DETENTION”
Note: while some believe that the 2013 NDAA eliminated indefinite detention, it does not. Dianne Feinstein introduced a very weak amendment to 2013 – and it failed anyway. 2012 indefinite detention provisions remain in tact – and the Obama administration is aggressively defending them in court.
