(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Governor Keating has signed a bill into law that's aimed at producing a more accurate sex offender registry in Oklahoma.

House Bill 1351 makes it illegal for a convicted sex offender to move without registering with the state Department of Corrections and local law enforcement at least three days before.

The bill was one of 30 signed Tuesday by the governor.

He also signed House Bill 1373, which requires law enforcement to preserve D-N-A evidence as long as the inmate tied to the evidence is incarcerated.

Keating signed House Bill 1183, which ensures the wishes of organ donors are respected in death even if family members are opposed.

Such wishes would be adhered to if noted in a will, donor card or other document.
