SB 588, one of CALCASA’s sponsored bills passed the California State Assembly today. The final vote was 65-0.

This bill eliminates the sunset date on California’s Sex Offender Management Board, which would otherwise disappear beginning December 31st this year. The passage of this bill will ensure that this vital board of experts addressing sex offender policy on a statewide basis will be able to do so on an ongoing basis.
The final word on this bill lies with Governor Schwarzenegger, when he chooses to sign or veto the bill. The bill has already received strong support from the administration, so this is a very good sign.
