Ten individuals representing California RSOL are lobbying in Sacramento in support of a tiered registry bill, AB 702. The bill, as currently written, would remove some individuals from the registry after 10 or 20 years after their release from prison, probation and/or parole.
“It is great to have two teams of individuals, including registrants and family members, lobbying in support of the tiered registry bill,” stated Janice Bellucci, President of CA RSOL. “We are educating elected officials and members of their staff regarding the need for a tiered registry.”
AB 702 was approved by the Public Safety Committee on April 16 and will be considered by the Appropriations Committee on May 24. The bill is currently on the suspense file of that committee and must be released in order to be voted upon by the full Assembly.
“Please call the office of Chairman Mike Gatto to request that AB 702 be freed from the suspense file,” stated Frank Lindsay, CA RSOL Treasurer. The phone number for that office is 916-319-2043.
