Hearing Today on DNA Saves

DNA Saves, legislation that I have drafted with Rep. Ann Hraychuck calling for the collection of DNA samples from offenders at the time of felony arrest, will be held for a public hearing today before the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Corrections, Insurance, Campaign Finance Reform, and Housing.

Jayann Sepich, a victim’s advocate that is leading the national effort to enact such legislation in every state, will be testifying at the hearing. Currently, 21 states and the federal government have enacted legislation requiring the collection of DNA samples from offenders at felony arrest.
