These two committees hear the vast majority of the bills introduced in our General Assembly that involve sexual offenses, offenders, and registration. During Session, we may ask our members to contact all committee members to express concern or support on particular bills. Please call or email these representatives as often as appropriate regarding specific legislation.
When you call or write, be sure to include the bill number and title, your name, and your county/town/district. State if you are FOR or AGAINST. Then very briefly summarize your concerns or compliments about the bill. Do NOT bring in anything not directly covered by the bill. Thank you!
If any judicial committee members are in YOUR district, it is especially important for you to arrange a time to talk to them outside of the legislative season about the negative collateral consequences of public registration. They can NOT help you change your conviction outcome or adjust your Tier; nor can they single-handedly roll back the punitive changes that have been added to the registry. But if enough of us convince enough of them that things have gone too far, we will be able to affect change.
You can find out who YOUR representatives are HERE. You are welcome to talk to them at any time. If any of them are on one of the committees below, even better!
