AN ACT To amend Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 39-13-705(a), relative to sex offenders.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE:

SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 39-13-705(a), is amended by deleting the subsection in its entirety and substituting instead the following language:

(a) On and after January 1, 1996, each sex offender who is to be considered for probation or any other alternative sentencing shall be required to submit to an evaluation for treatment, risk potential, procedures required for monitoring of behavior to protect victims and potential victims, and an identification under the procedures developed pursuant to Section 39-13-704(d)(1).

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law, the public welfare requiring it.

PASSED: April 28, 1998

APPROVED this day of 1998

Pursuant to Article III, Section 18, of the Constitution of the State of Tennessee, the Governor had Senate Bill No. 2674 in his possession longer than ten (10) days, so therefore the bill becomes law without the Governor's signature.
