California expands DNA Testing

Voters adopted an initiative allowing DNA testing of all felons, not just those convicted of particular crimes. And in 2009, felony arreestees will also be subject to testing. Reuters reports that "With the approval of Prop. 69, California becomes one of three U.S. states to collect samples at arrest, and one of 34 that collects DNA samples from all convicted felons."
