Meeting to consider SB 357, SB 480, SB 897, SB 922, SB 1011, and HB 1952

That’s a link for a video from the PA Senate Judiciary committee this morning. Go to timeline of 3:15 seconds.

It’s short, but to offer a brief summary Chairman Greenleaf (Republican) is having a back and forth with someone… I can’t tell who. They talk about the PA supreme court ruling SORNA violating Ex Post Facto, and apparently Greenleaf was the original author of the original Megan’s Law. It sounds like his major concern would be for SVP being removed from the list (lifetime?), where-as the other guy doesn’t want anyone removed and is worried about the registry going away completely. It sounds like there will be more meetings and hearings with regards to it and they want to tweak it it and move it forward. The video did not offer a specific timeline except to say an expedited hearing sooner rather than later “within the week”.

PLEASE KEEP CALLING AND WRITING YOUR STATE SENATORS
