Lawmakers will try again with bills to address Ferguson

( KTRS ) Lawmakers are again pushing for bills to address concerns that brought national attention to St. Louis after the civil unrest in Ferguson.

The fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in 2014 sparked protests in the area and around the country.

Lawmakers last session passed a bill to limit the power and revenue-generating ability of local courts. But more than 60 other measures on police policy and the justice system failed. Legislators say there’s still a chance to change the policing policy in the legislative session beginning Jan. 6.

Proposals on the table include requiring officers to wear body cameras and tightening state law on police use of deadly force.
