Issues

Law enforcement drones

On January 21, 2013, Heilman, fellow Representatives Rick Becker, Dick Anderson, Thomas Beadle, Curt Hofstad, David Monson, Karen Rohr, Nathan Toman, and Ben Hanson and Senator Margaret Sitte introduced HB 1373 to restrict the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) by law enforcement agencies. This bill would require agencies to receive a court warrant for any drone use, and such warrants would only be obtainable for felony investigations. Exceptions would be made for drones used to patrol the Canadian border, aid law enforcement agencies where there is "reasonable suspicion" that quick action is necessary, and evaluate damage during and after natural disasters. HB 1373 would also allow people injured by governmental violation of these restrictions to sue the offending law enforcement agencies. The bill would expressly prohibit surveillance by drones with lethal or non-lethal weapons, private surveillance of other private parties without informed consent, and surveillance of people exercising their constitutional rights of free speech and assembly.[1][2] On January 28, the Judiciary Committee held its first hearing on the bill.[3]

"Caylee's Law"

Heilman is one of several lawmakers around the nation who plan to introduce legislation known as "Caylee's Law." Named after the child whose death lead to the Casey Anthony murder trial, the laws would propose a range of provisions that mandate timely reporting of missing or deceased children.[4][5]

Scorecards

North Dakota Legislative Review

See also: North Dakota Legislative Review

The North Dakota Policy Council, a North Dakota-based nonprofit research organization, published the North Dakota Legislative Review, a comprehensive report on how state legislators voted during the 2011 legislative session. The scorecard seeks to show how North Dakota legislators voted on the principles the Council seeks to promote. The Council recorded and scored votes on both spending bills and policy bills, and awarded points accordingly. Policy issues voted upon included income tax cuts, pension reform, and government transparency. On spending legislation, the Council accorded a percentage score based on how much spending the legislator voted against. On policy legislation, scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Council.[8] Heilman received a score of 55.42% on policy legislation and voted against 2.25% of state spending. Heilman was ranked 39th on policy and 82nd on spending, out of 94 House members evaluated for the study.[9]
