FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live): The mother of a slain former NDSCS student who had been working as a criminal informant says it’s a positive feeling knowing that the state is doing something after what happened.

House bill 1221 aims to set limits on law enforcement agencies on who can be confidential informants, outlines how campus police officers can’t be used to recruit CI’s and includes new information in the signed CI agreement.

Tammy Sadek says her attorney helped draft the legislation, a committee making several changes before signing off. She added she has Gov. Doug Burgum’s support too when it comes to the bill.

Sadek’s son, Andrew, was found dead in the Red River in June 2014 and had been working with a regional drug task force after being arrested for selling $80 worth of marijuana to a criminal informant.
