(two senders) readers.
need those of you who have read the quick survey (below) to send
me the answersfor YOUR state so I can build an accurate and
complete 50 state spreadsheet.
please take 10 minutes out of your day if you are from any state other than
Virginia, Florida or Illinois and answer the below questions.
very, very much!
readers here in Virginia
know for 5 out of the last 6 Virginia General Assembly sessions one of my Top
8 Legislative Goalshas been a Dissemination of Information Bill.
Basically the Virginia State Police (the monitor and manager of RSO’s in Virginia) would have a
full list of current legal restrictions and regulations (State and Federal)
available at registration and when new laws pass and go in effect on July 1st
they would update the list and disperse it to all RSO’s.
This would eliminate needless violations that carry a felony punishment.
2010 an article on how the Commonwealth makes no effortto advise
Virginia’s RSO of their legal obligations but are quick to charge them with a
felony if they fail to abide by them stated that New Mexico spells out the restrictions on a website, while North
Carolina and Indiana, require offenders to read over a list of the laws and
sign that they understand it while in the presence of a law enforcement
officer. And in Kentucky,
offenders receive a notice each time a law changes. Of course this was 4
years ago so who knows what they do in 2014.
decide to find out how all 50 States handle this issue and this is where I need your help.
