Bill author Sharon Quirk Silva has pulled Assembly Bill 558 (AB 558) from consideration during next week’s Public Safety Committee hearing. The bill was scheduled for consideration on June 27, but it is now expected that AB 558 won’t be heard until 2018 if at all.
“The threat of AB 558 has disappeared from the horizon,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “There is language in the original and revised versions of AB 558 that contradicts language in the current version of the Tiered Registry Bill (SB 421). Perhaps the author is waiting to see the final disposition of SB 421 before she makes a final decision regarding AB 558.”
