HB 426 is the house version of the SB 297 Blanket Ban. Oppose this now!

Essentially this is the House Version of SB 297, which sought to ban registrants from being within 500 feet of schools for any reason. The same argument against SB 297 applies here as well. So if you wrote something opposing SB 297, feel free to use it here. After all, this is Same crap, different assholes.

This time it is going before the House Judiciary Committee.

Here are the House Judiciary Committee emails:

SYNOPSIS of HB 426
Under existing law, it is a Class C felony for an adult sex offender who has been convicted of a sex offense involving a minor to loiter on or within 500 feet of school property or certain other property used for caring for, educating, or entertaining minors, without a legitimate purpose for being on the property.
This bill would make it a Class C felony for a convicted sex offender, after having been convicted of a sex offense involving a minor, to enter or remain within 500 feet of school property or certain other property used for caring for, educating, or entertaining minors. This bill would also make it a Class C felony for a convicted sex offender, after having been convicted of a sex offense involving a minor, to enter or remain within 500 feet of the property line of any property on which there is a public K-12 school or to actively participate in any public K-12 school activity when or where students are present.

  2. This bill has nothing to do with churches, only schools. The current law only relates to restricted places as being schools, day care centers, and universities. Why one can't live by a college is beyond me considering registrants are free to attend them.
