Yesterday a few bills posted in LIS (for the upcoming 2014 Virginia General Assembly session) that I will be following but one in particular is standing above all others (see below).
I am waiting to hear from the patron (left a message) on exactly what the intent of this bill is and who Robby is.
I’m pretty darn sure once I hear the full explanation I will be opposing this bill but until then I will wait to get all the facts.
If any reader is a constituent of Delegate Ramadan and you are wondering why this bill has been submitted and what it’s real intention is, please reach out to his district office in the next 2 weeks before all the representative convene in Richmond.
If the explanation you are given about HB195 is undesirable or absolutely ridiculous (as I am currently concluding), tell the Delegate you oppose it.
There will be more to come on this bill and most likely many action alerts with bullet points on why HB195 should NOT become law in
HB195 : Supplement to the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry
Sponsor/ Patron: David I. Ramadan
Brief Explanation / Bill Summary as Introduced:
Requires the Superintendent of State Police to establish and maintain a supplement to the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry that would include the names of persons who have committed offenses that would require registration if the offense occurred today, but who are not otherwise required to register. Any attorney for the Commonwealth or law-enforcement officer may submit a request to the Department of State Police to include a person on the supplement to the Registry. Upon receipt of a request, the Department of State Police must confirm whether the person should be included on the supplement to the Registry.
