An anonymous donors has offered to match up to $5,000 in donations in order to challenge the proposed SORNA regulations which were published in the Federal Register in August 2020 and approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in October 2021. Under the terms of the challenge grant, the donor will provide $1 for every $1 in donations from others.
“We thank the donor of this challenge grant for both his generosity as well as his wisdom that resources will be required to challenge the proposed SORNA regulations,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “Donations can be easily made online using the Donate button on the ACSOL website www.all4consolaws.org. Or donations can mailed to ACSOL at 1215 K Street, 17th Floor, Sacramento, CA 95814.”
If the proposed SORNA regulations are finalized, many registrants will be required to register up to four times a year. In addition, all registrants will be required to reveal all of their remote communication identifiers.
The proposed SORNA regulations are now under consideration by Attorney General Merrick Garland. The current language of those regulations is not currently known and are not required to be revealed until and unless the Attorney General approves them.
ACSOL recommends that individuals state their opposition to the proposed SORNA regulations.
