The General Assembly also ratified and Gov. Easley signed into law a bill to protect our children from Internet sexual predators. The bill, House Bill 29, will require recidivist sexually violent predators to enroll in a satellite-based monitoring system for life.

Another bill, House Bill 47, makes it a felony to violate a protective order related to a domestic violence case while in possession of a deadly weapon.
