Georgia State Legislature Subcommittee Recommends 'Do Not Pass' on Proposed Legislation to Ban TASER(TM) Devices

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TASER International, Inc. , a market leader in advanced non-lethal devices, today lauded the action by the Georgia State Public Safety Subcommittee which yesterday recommended a "do not pass" for two pieces of proposed legislation (House Bill 29 and House Resolution 6) which would have banned TASER devices in the state of Georgia for law enforcement. The Public Safety Committee followed the "do not pass" recommendation and will refer this topic to a study committee to gather further information. It is anticipated that no further action will be taken on this legislation for the remainder of the year.

"This is a great victory for the law enforcement community and for TASER International. We are very heartened and grateful for the law enforcement leadership that turned out to show strong support of TASER technology," said Tom Smith, President and co-founder of TASER International. "This recommendation represents further affirmation of the growing support enjoyed by our lifesaving technology. We believe that TASER technology will continue to save lives every day and reduce injuries to both officers and suspects in the great State of Georgia. We are hopeful that when presented with similar facts and support from the core users of our technology, that only thoughtful, productive legislation will move forward," concluded Mr. Smith.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda.
