PA lawmakers call for citizens to push for continued sex abuse reform

Sex abuse laws in Pennsylvania are changing. Recently, the state passed a law that expands the rights of victims, but was it enough? Some lawmakers are voicing opposition, stating the reform was a step in the right direction but that more is needed.

Pennsylvania Senate Passes Law to Reform Overhaul Pennsylvania Child Sex Abuse Laws

Although HB 1947 would overhaul Pennsylvania's child sex abuse laws, the legislation lacks the key measure that victims demanded. Unfortunately, the bill did not include a provision, which appeared in the bill's original version, that would allow victims to pursue claims for abuse that occurred decades ago.
