During the 2021 legislative session, Chairman Hull sponsored a new law which authorizes police departments of higher education institutions to enter into an agreement with any city or town to provide assistance in a nonemergency situation for police services. He also sponsored a bill which requires all public utilities to maintain a customer service facility within the state to perform services such as addressing customer inquiries and accepting bill payments.
