The changes deal with concerns that were raised after two men listed on the registry were murdered in 2006.
The bill focuses on people who offended from 1982 to 1992, and have not re-offended, or who don’t have a prior history of offenses.
Under the proposal, they can be removed from the registry. It also changes the definition of a lifetime registrant.
In addition, the bill makes changes that address flaws that were pointed out by the state supreme court last year.
The bill faces further votes.
