MONTPELIER, Vermont: The House Government Operations Committee will he holding a hearing and taking testimony from the public regarding the use of stun guns. The hearing is set to take place on April 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.[1]

Those who wish to testify will each be given two minutes to make a statement on the matter.[1]

Lawmakers are currently considering two bills associated with the police use of stun guns. One bill calls for uniform training and standards for all officers using them in the state. The other would implement a digital memory chip in each one which would record every use of the weapon and make it a public record.[1]
