Comprehensive sex offender legislation introduced

3-10-2014 Rhode Island:

Rep. Peter G. Palumbo (D-Dist. 16, Cranston) has introduced legislation, in conjunction with the Office of the Attorney General, to replace existing sex offender laws with a more comprehensive statute, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), which implements provisions of the federal Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act.

The bill proposes a new mechanism for “tiering” sex offenders and places control of the registry under the State Police. The bill (2014-H 7425) is before the House Committee on Finance. ..Source..
