California Governor Gavin Newsom has extended the provisions of an Executive Order that encourages local law enforcement organizations to forego in-person registration. The original Order, issued on May 8, included a waiver from obtaining individuals’ fingerprints and photographs for a period of 60 days.
The Governor’s revised Order was issued quietly on June 30 without a press release. According to the revised Order, the provisions in the original Order are extended until the revised order is “modified or rescinded, or until the State of Emergency is terminated, whichever occurs sooner.”
“We thank Governor Newsom for continuing to encourage local law enforcement to stop registering individuals in person,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “Anyone required to provide fingerprints or a photograph should contact ACSOL for further information.”
The number of the original Executive Order is N-63-20 and the provision regarding registrants can be found in paragraph 15. The number of the revised Executive Order is N-71-20 and the provision regarding registrants can be found in paragraph 36.
