Springfield–(ENEWSPF)–April 8, 2011. Attorney General Lisa Madigan today applauded the House for passing a bill (HB 3238) to strengthen the state’s DNA database. The bill, which was sponsored by Rep. Susana Mendoza (D-Chicago) who worked closely with Madigan’s office, requires all registered sex offenders to provide a DNA specimen and calls for collecting DNA of people arrested for the most serious violent crimes after they are indicted or after a court finding of probable cause.
