Bond revocation bill passes House

A bill to clarify that a Court may revoke a bail bond for new violations passed in the House 96-0 and now goes on to the Senate for consideration. The bill states:

If after the defendant is released upon personal recognizance, an unsecured personal appearance bond, or any other bond approved by the court, the defendant violates a condition of release, is charged with an offense committed during the defendant's release, or engages in conduct which results in the obstruction of the orderly and expeditious progress of the trial or other proceedings, then the court may revoke and terminate the defendant’s bond and order him held without bail pending trial or without release during trial.
