A House committee has advanced a bill that would ban dangerous sex offenders from some facilities in Arkansas state parks.

The bill by Republican Rep. Stephanie Malone of Fort Smith passed on a voice vote in the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Malone's bill would prohibit the most extreme categories of sex offenders from being present at swimming pools or playgrounds at state parks.

State parks officials sought the legislation.
