HARRISBURG, Pa — State Reps. Tina Davis and Pam Snyder introduced a bill that would restrict sex offenders from living near schools.
The proposed bill would make it so that those registered under Megan’s Law would not be permitted to live within 2,500 feet of any school or child-care facility.

According to PA State Police reports, there is approximately 21,600 registered sex offenders residing in the commonwealth, ranging in offenses from rape to child pornography possession.
“Right now, there are no laws preventing offenders from moving in right next door to the school attended by your child, grandchild, niece or nephew,” said Davis, D-Bucks. “Our legislation aims to address this problem and keep kids safe at school and on their way to and from school.”
“We must do all we can to protect our most vulnerable citizens from those with a proven record of predatory – and in some cases violent – behavior,” said Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington. “Our legislation simply mandates a buffer zone between an offender and a school or child-care facility to keep children safe. It’s past time Pennsylvania had a law like this on its books.”
