Under the direction of Attorney General Eric Holder, a 1-year extension was granted on May 26, 2009, to all jurisdictions required to comply with the provisions of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act.
Jurisdictions now have until July 27, 2010, to substantially implement specific requirements for registering and monitoring sex offenders under the SORNA provisions of the Adam Walsh Act. In addition to this extension, jurisdictions may request another 1-year extension from the SMART Office.
As of May 26, 2009, 48 states, 126 Indian tribes, 5 U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia had submitted requests for the first 1-year extension.
