Counsel.  Explains SB 106B as amended in the House Judiciary Committee makes changes to statutes on elder abuse and abuse of disabled persons.  Continues that SB 106B includes firefighters and emergency medical technicians within the definition of public and private officials who have a mandatory reporting duty to report abuse of elderly or disabled persons; extends the definition of abuse for reporting and restraining order purposes to include wrongful taking or appropriating of money or property and to exclude non-consenting sexual contact of elderly persons and persons with disabilities; specifies type of relief available under restraining order to prevent abuse of elderly and disabled persons.  Advises the further amendment which is the subject of the conference committee would require state agencies and registered sex offenders to notify long-term and residential care facilities of the sex offender’s status and permit the care facilities to deny admission or discharge or transfer registered sex offenders under certain circumstances.  Refers to the -12 amendments (EXHIBIT A) which revise Section 13 only of SB 106B.  Explains further the changes in the -12 amendments.  Advises of a sunset provision that repeals only Section 13 of SB 106B in January 2010.
