Sex Offender Bill Defeated By Assembly Public Safety Committee

Statement from Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff
Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement today after the Assembly Public Safety Committee voted this morning to block legislation by Assembly Member Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) that would have sent sex offenders back to state prison if they violated parole by failing to register as a sex offender. 

“When sex offenders go missing, we risk having our children go missing.  We have to stop this,” said Senator Huff.  “A law isn’t a law until it is enforced.  There are many people in communities who work late, have to take public transportation home at night, and it makes it harder for our children to go to school, safely.”
