Governor Steve Bullock Signs Sex Offender Bill Into Law

Steve Bullock

Under a new law, out-of-state sex offenders living in Montana will be required to submit a DNA sample to be included in a state-wide sex offender DNA database.

Senate Bill 213 passed both chambers unanimously under the sponsorship of Democratic Sen. Cliff Larsen of Missoula and was signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Steve Bullock.

The bill was also backed by Attorney General Tim Fox, who says that the information will help authorities track sex offenders.

Montana State Forensic Scientist Megan Ashton says that 2000 out-of-state sex offenders living in Montana are already on the sex offender registry.

The law will require they now provide a DNA sample to the DNA database.
