Andrew Nixon / Capital Public Radio / File California lawmakers are considering a pair of competing bills to regulate how and when police officers can use deadly force. One bill authored by state Sen. Anna Caballero (D-Salinas Valley) and backed by law enforcement groups would include changes that parallel recent recommendations by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to the Sacramento Police Department in the wake of Stephon Clark’s death in March 2018. The other bill authored by Assemblymember Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) with support by civil rights groups would enact even more dramatic changes. For this week’s Capitol Chat, Ben Adler breaks down the two competing bills with an update on how lawmakers are tackling the thorny issues involved.
