Earlier this month, the legislature held hearings on bills that would prohibit Level 2 and 3 sex offenders from living in public and subsidized housing or emergency shelter or motels. The Network submitted testimony in opposition to these bills which you can read here. The Springfield Republican also covered the issue in this article, quoting our resident (and work group) expert Dr. Laurie Guidry.
The Network also submitted recommendations for next steps to the Special Commission to Reduce Sex Offender Recidivism as follow-up to our May 28 presentation. You can find that here.
We will meet next to continue our work on this issue on:
Wed., September 9
1:30 – 2:30 pm
Northampton Senior Center
