Daily Update – Feb 17

The House has now wrapped up the 6th week of the Regular Session.

On Friday, the House advanced HB1534.

This bill allows a judge to issue an order directing a cell phone provider to transfer billing and rights of a cell phone number to the person seeking protection from domestic abuse. This legislation aims to not only provide victims of abuse with access to contacts of family and friends but it also protects records on their location.

The House also passed HB1540 which requires registered sex offenders to provide law enforcement with updated information about their social media accounts. This also clarifies that when sex offenders are required to report to law enforcement that they do so in person.

And the House passed another bill addressing sex offenders. SB32 prohibits Level 4 sex offenders from attending any ticketed event as schools, such as football games or school plays. The bill requires Level 3 sex offenders to give a 24 hour notice to the school before attending such an event.

The House will not meet on Monday, Presidents’ Day. We will reconvene on Tuesday at 1:30pm.
