Victims' rights advocate Jennifer Storm was disappointed with the outcome in the Pennsylvania Senate on October 17. At stake was the elimination of the statute of limitations for future child victims of sexual abuse. A divisive component of the bill involved opening a two-year window for past victims to sue their abusers. The Senate decided to not vote on the bill. Ms. Storm wants to bring the Senate back to the capitol to get closure on behalf of abuse victims statewide.
