Legislation against nuisance bars is a bipartisan collaboration

State Representative Jordan Harris is the primary proponent of the measure to address the problem.

In a recent statement, Cong. Harris said, “While stop-and-go enforcement have always been a popular idea, it took a great amount of courage and political will to get it done.

Additionally, he noted, “There were a lot of sacrifices made to ensure these enforcement were put in place. None of this would be possible without the bipartisan and bicameral collaboration.”

On Wednesday, Cong. Harris said they can start the process of eliminating nuisance bars from communities. He said, “This is just one of many steps to ensure the safety and serenity of our neighborhoods.”

Furthermore, Cong Harris praised the courage and political will of his colleagues in passing the legislation. He said their actions “shows that we are on our way to lasting change.”
