The Senate Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider Senate Bill (SB) 1143 on April 24. If passed, SB 1143 would require registrants convicted of an offense involving a minor to disclose their requirement to register to both potential landlords as well as those who have a house to sell. If a registrant failed to make this disclosure, the landlord or seller could lawfully cancel an existing lease or contract.
“This bill must be stopped,” state ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “If the bill becomes law, there will be a significant increase in the number of homeless registrants and that, in turn, will reduce public safety.”
The committee hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. and be held in Room 3191 of the State Capitol.
Registrants, family members, and supporters are encouraged to write letters opposing SB 1143 to Senator Nancy Skinner, Chair of the Senate Public Safety Committee.
