HARRISBURG – Survivors, families and legislators took to the Capitol Tuesday to push forward changes in child abuse statute of limitations with the hope of again adding language some deem controversial others said is necessary.
A rally to revive the statute of limitations bill.
Rep. Mark Rozzi, along with colleagues and survivors of child sex abuse, stood inside the Capitol strongly urging the lawmakers to pass the statute of limitations months after it was introduced.
The bill would eliminate the criminal statute of limitations and extend civil statutes to age 50.
The bill currently sits in the House Rules committee, but Rozzi said he expects the bill will be voted out and voted on by house members, with retroactivity back in the bill.
