Legislative Response: Comments on the Proposed Rule Changes to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA)
In October 2020, ATSA submitted comments on proposed changes to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), raising concerns about the Attorney General's unilateral authority to modify SORNA and the lack of consistent, evidence-based laws across states. They emphasize the negative impacts of SORNA's broad reach and the challenges it creates for registrants in a mobile society. ATSA recommends a review process for changes to SORNA, alignment of laws with evidence-based practices, and relief from registration for natural disasters and public health emergencies.
