Consideration of Tiered Registry Bill Delayed (SB 421)

Senator Scott Wiener, author of the Tiered Registry Bill (SB 421), has waived presentation regarding that bill on May 15, the original date on which the Senate Appropriations Committee was scheduled to consider the bill. Due to this waiver, SB 421 will be placed in the committee’s Suspense File and will not be considered until May 25.

According to staff in the office of Sen. Wiener, there is uncertainty regarding the estimate cost of implementing the Tiered Registry Bill. The estimated cost is expected to be revealed in a Budget Committee analysis which has not yet been completed.

“A tiered registry will save taxpayer dollars as well as increase the safety of taxpayers’ lives,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “It is our hope that the Appropriations Committee will consider future savings — of dollars and lives — when it reviews the Tiered Registry Bill.”

SB421 is CURRENTLY in the “Suspense File” of the Appropriations Committee. Its supposed to have a “hearing” on 05/25. This is to determine if the cost of implementing this proposed law will be $50,000.00 or more, as appears to be the case NOW! Can the author of this bill PLEASE make the case the amount of money SAVED in implementing it will cancel out ANY “cost” in implementing it?

What does it take to get Weiner to do this?
