The bill was not subjected to any hearings. The bill (all 139 pages of it) was written entirely in secret by a small committee. The bill was finally given to the full legislature (both chambers) sometime late on Monday. They railroaded through getting it certified as "emergency" legislation, which meant that it did not have to go through any committees or have any public hearings. It was voted in on Wednesday, basically 48 hours after the rank-and-file legislators first saw it.

It is unlikely most of them read the entire bill. If they did, they could not possibly have understood it because the police departments are still trying to figure it out. It was like Pelosi with Obamacare: "We'll have to pass it to find out what it says."
