State Senator upset sex offender bill may be sidelined

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- State Senator Brian Crain says he's upset that legislative maneuvering may have sidelined his bill to require sex offender notification on drivers' licenses.

Crain said Monday that he's been told the bill is being reassigned from the state Senate Appropriations Committee to the appropriations committee on public safety. And Crain says he's been told the subcommittee that would consider the bill won't meet again before the deadline for getting bills out of committee.

But Senator Kenneth Corn says an identical bill he introduced last year could get a hearing in a state Senate committee later this week.

Crain says a law is needed because schools and nursing homes require background checks so they do not hire sex offenders. But he says agencies who supply some employees may not know they're employing a sex offender.
