Arizona SB1291 is a bill which takes strong steps towards nullifying “indefinite detention” powers. While this bill has passed its first committee, it still needs to be approved by another Senate committee before a full Senate vote. It has been assigned to the Senate Rules Committee but still needs to be scheduled. It’s crucial that this bill passes in order to continue through the legislative process.
