On September 14, 2005, the House rejected, by a vote of 106 to 316, an amendment that would have removed mandatory minimum sentencing provisions for individuals who fail to register as sex offenders. The ACLU supported this amendment because it would preserve judicial discretion and protect the rights of offenders. This amendment was offered to The Children's Safety Act of 2005 (H.R. 3132).
