PHOENIX, Ariz. (KSAZ) – State lawmakers are considering a bill that would crack down on those involved in riots.
Under a bill that cleared a Senate committee on Thursday, people who take part in a riot, or those nearby, could face Racketeering charges, and could also have their assets seized.
Republican supporters of the bill said it could help deter violence, and target groups that reportedly pay people to protest.
However, Democrats called the bill unnecessary.
