SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Resetting of bail, amending bail set upon arrest. Provides that when the court having jurisdiction of a bail proceeding believes the amount of bond or security set by a judicial officer at initial arrest to be inadequate or excessive, it may, after notice to the parties, change the amount of such bond or security, require new and additional sureties, or set other terms of bail as are appropriate to the case, including, but not limited to, drug and alcohol monitoring. Currently, the court is limited to increasing the initial bail and may not impose additional bail requirements such as alcohol and drug monitoring. This bill is identical to HB 715.
