Police body-worn cameras... They've been the subject of much attention in recent months. Are you aware that the one-year anniversary of new Texas legislation on this very subject just passed? New Police Body Camera legislation went into effect in September 2015. The intent was to "seek to create statewide standards on the use of body-worn cameras by law enforcement and to provide a state solution to assist the procurement and operation of a body-worn camera program."
Effective October 1, 2012, the U.S. Department of Transportation alerted motor carriers of a statutory exemption included in the MAP-21 Transportation Legislation which provides an exemption from the hours-of-service regulations for carriers transporting agricultural commodities and farm supplies.
