ACSOL will conduct Lobby Day on Tuesday, February 11, in Sacramento. The day will begin with training at 9 a.m. at a “new” address, 500 Capitol Mall, and will end about 5 p.m. All participants are invited to attend a group dinner, funded by ACSOL, following at 5:30 p.m.
“The primary focus of this year’s Lobby Day will be proposed changes to the Tiered Registry Law,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “There is a lack of logic and reason to the assignment of individuals convicted of non-contact, non-violent offenses to Tier 3, the highest tier, which requires lifetime registration.”
Lobby Day will include meetings in the offices of all members of the Public Safety Committees in both the Assembly and the Senate as well as members elected to those bodies last year. Individuals who participate in Lobby Day will be assigned to a team led by an individual who has participated in past lobbying efforts. ACSOL will provide team members with a folder of information, including talking points.
“It is important for us to both thank state legislators for passage of a Tiered Registry Law as well as to identify necessary improvements to that law,” stated ACSOL President Chance Oberstein. “We look forward to the participation of individuals required to register as well as their families and those who support them professionally.”
