LANSING (WKZO) -- The State House this week passed legislation that would give judges the authority to order those accused of violent crimes to wear a tracking bracelet as a condition of their bail.

State Representative Joel Johnson says it at least ensures that a potentially violent person will be tracked while he waits for his case to be resolved:Johnson says that judges already can make such orders, but this law clarifies and codifies that.
