Sunset Review Process

In 2007, the general assembly created the cold case task force and put a sunset date of July 1, 2012, on the task force. The cold case task force sunset date is extended to September 1, 2019. A forensic pathologist is added to the task force membership. The governor will appoint the forensic pathologist to the task force, and the appointee will serve a 3-year term. On February 28 the House approved the bill on 3rd Reading; the bill is assigned to the Judiciary Committee in the Senate.
