Last week, we told you about Hartford State Rep. Kelvin Roldan’s bill that would have made it illegal for sex offenders to live within 2,000 feet of a school. Detractors said the bill, among other things, left no place in the state’s cities for those offenders to live.
Turns out that the bill didn’t leave the legislature’s judiciary committee. Here’s what Roldan told us in an email Monday:
“Due to time constraints the bill was not voted on today. The caucus will however continue to discuss the issue and the bill may receive consideration later in the legislative process. Due to the strong public response received from constituents and members of the General Assembly, I will continue to work with my collegues to get this legislation enacted this session. The issue does not end today.”
