HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA -- Pennsylvania's Megan's Law could soon undergo major changes.
The state will consider a proposal that would place more stringent restrictions on sex offenders, including greater community notification and participation in a national Megan's List registry.
However, a spokesperson with Governor Rendell's office said the state will need to conduct a study to consider the costs of updating its system.
Under a 2006 federal law, if Pennsylvania opts out of the upgrades, it will see a 10% cut in federal law enforcement funding.
