Pennsylvania State Representatives have introduced House Bills 47 and 77. These bills target persons forced to register under PA’s Megan’s Law. If passed, an individual forced to register as a “sexually violent predator” who resides within 2,500 feet of a public school, private school, parochial school, or day-care center would have six months after the law’s effective date to relocate to another residence that is situated at least 2,500 feet from said buildings.
We know that residency restrictions (and the registry in general) are ineffective and harmful to more people than they theoretically protect. We implore you to contact Judiciary Committee Chairman Tim Briggs on this matter. Chairman Briggs can stop this bill in its tracks by not allowing it to be heard in his committee.
