The Jefferson City News Tribune today included an article regarding proposed legislation by Rep. Ward Franze from West Plains, Mo. that would allow a new special code to be included on the front of driver's licenses issued to convicted sexual offenders. This new code would identify the driver as a sexual offender, just like codes now identify restrictions on the licenses (eyeglasses, not after dark, etc). Supposedly it would also allow law enforcement officials to keep better track of the offenders. This legislation needs one more vote before it can be sent to the Senate. The bill number is HB224 and can be reached by going to the government website.
