Residents urge lawmaker to move forward on sex abuse legislation

October 01, 2018

One of Pennsylvania's leading lawmakers is being urged to move forward on proposed legislation that would give child sex abuse victims more time to file lawsuits.

Democrat Ezra Nanes is running against Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman in the 34th State Senate District race.

Nanes and several supporters showed up at Corman's Bellefonte office Friday morning to lobby for Senate approval of House legislation already approved that would allow victims to file lawsuits that would otherwise be outdated under current state law.

A spokesperson for Sen. Corman says the Senate is committed to providing further justice for victims before its upcoming recess.
