Riggs) - Amend subsection (9)(a) to specify that provisions of Section 1 apply to any county or state officer who "knowingly and willfully" violates the provisions rather than "knowingly"; lower the penalties for offenses set out in subparagraphs 2. and 3. to Class B and Class A misdemeanors respectively.
