Senator Kathy Sheran (DFL-Mankato) represents St. Peter, Minnesota where sex offenders are regularly learning how to transition into the community. She says the Senate is creating a “panicky situation” by only giving out partial information about sex offenders.

Health privacy laws won’t allow it, but Senator Sheran says the public needs to know more than just that a sex offender lives somewhere, but also the treatment that person has received.

She still voted for the bill which was written and passed in just a few days in response to the upcoming release of a convicted child molester into a halfway house.

It was sent to Governor Mark Dayton who says he supports the legislation.
