Clerks of court; collection of DNA sample for certain offenses; disclosure of tax information; Torrens system. Provides that a blood, saliva, or tissue sample shall be taken for any person convicted of a local ordinance that is similar to a misdemeanor for which a blood, saliva, or tissue sample is currently required to be taken.

Finally, the bill repeals the provision of law establishing the Torrens system, which provided for the settlement, registration, transfer, and assurance of titles to land and established courts of land registration. Amends § 19.2-310.2, § 58.1-3, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
