Reps. Frank Nicastro, Ernest Hewett, Marie Kirkley-Bey, Bruce Morris and Ms. Jayann Sepich, held a press conference on March 9th in support of a bill to require DNA testing for certain felony arrests. The bill, HB 6489 or "Katie's Law", would aid in identifying violent criminals and help close unsolved cold cases by having DNA screened against the DNA database.
The law identifies violent criminals quickly. By collecting DNA from arrestees, law enforcement can identify criminals earlier and create more efficient investigation practices. Solving crimes sooner reduces costs associated with misdirected investigations.
