A bill endorsed Friday by the House Judiciary Committee would require sex offenders to register in person with law enforcement.

Registration by mail every six months is the current requirement under the law.

Rep. Justin Harris, R-West Fork, is sponsoring House Bill 1007, saying it would save $70,000 a year in postage to notify offenders when it's time to renew registration.

HB 1007 now goes to the House.

    Ok, will someone tell me why this wasn't MANDATORY in the first place?! It shouldn't even have to be a "bill", it should've been a LAW when the Sex Offender program was introduced! With the budget as it is, this should be passed on the first vote! With reduced parole agents, and more parolees', each and EVERY offender should have to check in IN PERSON!!
