Governor Ducey vetoed thirteeen bills ranging from an educational requirement to teach cursive in schools to rejecting changes to how people who are determined to be incompenent to stand trial and assist in their defense.
Rusty Stuart, a detective who testified for the bill on behalf of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, said incompetency proceedings are effectively a “get-out-of-jail-free card.”
Prosecutors would have been required under SB1510 to inform hospitals that the person was recently involved in criminal proceedings, and hospitals would be required to inform the court if the person wasn’t complying with treatment or was released.
