Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Railroad Police Act. Provides that members of railroad police forces may issue administrative citations in accordance with the provisions of local law. Provides that passengers may be removed from a train or boat for conduct or language that annoys or vexes employees. Provides that this removal, if not done at the location of the offending conduct, may be done at an available public station or dock. Provides that for the purposes of removing an offending passenger, the conductor or captain may only command the assistance of passengers that are willing and able to render assistance. Provides before removing the passenger the conductor or captain must refund the passenger's fare minus the portion attributable to distance already travelled. Provides that no operating rule, bulletin, directive, or other order of a carrier shall contradict or limit this authority. Provides that the captain or master, or employees of a boat, rather than only steamboats, may arrest a passenger that has committed a crime or misdemeanor and take him or her before a judge of the circuit court in any county through which the boat passes on its trip, filing an affidavit with the judge of the circuit court charging the passenger with that crime or misdemeanor. Effective immediately.
