Contents: Richardson says this bill would not protect women and children from sexual assault and would be an invasion of privacy.
Brad Kethcer, the governor's Chief of Staff, says the governor supports the bill. He says the information about sex offenders is already available to the public. Posting the information on the Internet is a matter of convenience.
