Governor Doyle signed legislation today that requires lifetime G-P-S tracking for certain child sex offenders.

The bill says offenders who sexually assault a child under age 12, or use or threaten force or violence while molesting a child, are subject to global positioning tracking as a condition of parole, probation or extended supervision.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau estimated such monitoring would cost about $1 million for 285 offenders in the first year and about twice that much for 570 offenders in the second year.
