WA Democrats Want To Pass Sex Offender Bills Created From Gregoire's Task Force

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Democrats in the State House say they're going to pass seven bills stemming from Governor Chris Gregoire's task force on sex offenders.      

The package includes Gregoire's $5 million request to boost police verification of registered sex offenders' addresses.      

It also calls for DNA samples from all registered sex offenders, even though officials expect a legal challenge from offenders who've already completed their sentences.      

The House Majority says that won't be the end of it.

They also plan to work with Republicans on even more sex crime laws when the Legislature starts up Monday.

One proposal would focus on deporting sex offenders who are in the country illegally.
