Kate Tibbitts Act Targeting 'High-Risk' Transient Parolees Fails in Committee

A bill aimed at improving the ability of parole agents to keep tabs on transient parolees who have been convicted of violent crimes, or who are required to register as sex offenders, has failed in committee. Assembly Bill 1827 is named The Kate Tibbitts Act of 2022 after the 61-year-old homeowner in Sacramento’s Land Park neighborhood who was killed. Those who voted in favor of the bill were: Assemblymembers Tom Lackey, R-High Desert, and Kelly Seyarto, R-Murrieta.
