Staff Analysis of the Legislation

HB 983 amends Article 2 of Chapter 1 of Title 42 of the OCGA to add a sex offender’s landline and mobile telephone numbers to the lists of required registration information submitted to the Sexual Offender Registration Review Board. A sexual offender who resides in a private or state-operated health care facility, hospice facility, or skilled nursing home may complete the annual registration requirement at any time during their birthday month with the permission of the sheriff of the county where the offender resides. The sheriff may also waive that offender's requirement to be fingerprinted. The sheriff’s office in each county shall no longer collect a $250.00 annual registration fee from the sexual offender and transmit such fees into the general state fund.
