BILL NUMBER:S2006

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the correction law, in relation to sex
offender registration

PURPOSE: To help insure that sex offenders are held responsible for
knowing what the state and local residency and employment laws are in
the community verifying they are in compliance with them.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends paragraphs (b) and (b-1) of subdivision 2
of Section 168-f of the correction law.

EXISTING LAW: The present law requires verification of residency and
employment but does not put the burden on the offenders of verifying
that they are in compliance with state and local laws that regulate
residency and employment.
