Oppose HB 108: Anti Clusting Bill

This bill has stalled thus far, but that doesn't mean this law couldn't be resurrected soon.

In short, this is an "anti-clustering ban," which will bar two or more registrants from living in the same apartment complex or house. This will impact thousands of registrants, because many live in apartments out of necessity and lack of housing.

SYNOPSIS: Existing law prohibits an adult sex offender from having a residence in certain locations. This bill would allow the Legislature, by local law, to prohibit sex offenders from residing in the same residence, to provide that no more than one adult criminal sex offender may reside in an apartment complex unless there is a distance of at least 100 yards from the residence of any other offender, and allow a civil penalty for each violation.
