NH Senate works to remove disgraced former rep Kyle Tasker's name from bill

CONCORD (AP) — There's no simple way to remove a lawmakers name from a bill in New Hampshire — even if he or she has been arrested or resigned.
That's why legislative maneuvering is under way in Concord to ensure a measure on police body cameras can become law without Rep. Kyle Tasker's name on it. Tasker, the bill's original sponsor, resigned in March after he was arrested on three drug charges and one charge of trying to lure a minor for a sexual encounter. He is scheduled for a probable cause hearing Wednesday.
Senators plan to kill the bill when it comes to the floor. But the policy itself won't be dead. The Senate Judiciary Committee plans to attach similar language to a different bill — one without Tasker's name on it.
