ACTION ALERT: HB 353 is set for a hearing Tue, 1/26/16, 3:30 pm

It appears that HB 353, the bill that will ""amend sections 2950.04, 2950.041, and 2950.99 of the Revised Code to require a sheriff to mail a notice to every adult member of a household where a person who is required to register as a sex offender resides informing those household members that the person has committed a sexually oriented offense or a child-victim oriented offense," is set for a hearing on Tuesday, January 26, at 3:30pm. 

What this means is the state will expect Registered Citizens to register the names of every adult living in the household with the Sheriff's Office. 

It seems this meeting of the House Judiciary Committee is only for proponent testimony (i.e., those in favor of it), but even so, anyone who can attend should attend. 

Apparently, they're taking testimony by electronic submission as well. 

Please submit an electronic copy of oral and/or written testimony and all amendments to JudiciaryCommittee@ohiohouse.gov   by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, January 25th.

See ReFORM-Ohio's earlier analysis on HB 353 to see what this means for Ohio registrants.
