Arkansas governor signs sex offender restrictions into law

2-6-2013 Arkansas:

Gov. Mike Beebe has signed into law legislation banning certain sex offenders from swimming areas and playgrounds in state parks and another bill imposing a fee on sex offenders who move to Arkansas from another state.

The measures are among 28 bills Beebe signed into law Wednesday. One that he signed would make it a Class D felony for Level 3 and 4 sex offenders — the highest level — to be present at swimming areas or playgrounds within a state park and it takes effect immediately.

The other bill levies a $250 fee on new Arkansas residents who are required to register as sex offenders. ..Source.. by SFGate.com
