A bill that requires juvenile sex offenders to register with their county goes to the Governor. Karyn Dest reports from Jefferson City.
The bill passed easily in both the House and Senate.
If Governor Carnahan signs it, sex offenders under twenty-one would have ten days to register with county officers.
Democratic Representative Phil Smith of Louisiana says the registration requirement is appropriate.
Smith says juvenile officers would have the records and could only tell schools and law enforcement if necessary. In Jefferson City, I'm Karyn Dest.
