Republican Sens. Jim Merritt and John Waterman introduced a measure Monday that they say is narrow enough to comply with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling. The court found Indiana's 2008 ban violated the First Amendment because it was too broad.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana fought the 2008 measure for a man who served three years for child molestation and other sex offenders no longer on probation.
