Senate Bill 145, Penalize 'sanctuary' cities and public universities: Passed 34 to 15 the state Senate on April 26, 2017
To create financial penalties for cities and public universities adopting "sanctuary" policies against immigration laws. "Sanctuary cities" would be ineligible to receive distributions from the state highway fund and several other public funds and no longer immune from lawsuits for crimes committed there by illegal immigrants. Public universities with sanctuary policies would lose management and budget independence. The bill would also end an exemption letting law enforcement officers use prohibited ID forms to establish identity or residency.
