House Endorses DNA Bills To Update State Law

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – Two bills designed to allow law enforcement agencies to take advantage of advances in DNA testing has been approved by the PA House. Mercer County Rep. Tedd Nesbit, prime sponsor of House Bills 2307 and 2308, said his bills will help exonerate those falsely convicted, and help law enforcement match convicted criminals with other crimes that have been committed. He added that making updates to our state laws to ensure proper use and sharing of DNA will allow law enforcement and prosecutors to ensure due process, while also saving taxpayer money. The bills now go to the state Senate.
