Senate goes to wire on child sex offenders
We're back in the Senate for the race till midnight. The motion before the chamber is to concur in the House amendments to one of the package of sex offenders bills making its way through the General Assembly. The Senate has just voted unanimously to approve Sen. Nancy Jacobs' Senate Bill 622, toughening penalties for adults over 18 who molest children 13 and younger. That sends it to Gov. Martin O'Malley.
Senate Bill 854, one of the other sex offender bills, is on its way upstairs too after the conference committee agreement was approved unanimously.
