This afternoon, lawmakers at the State Capitol in Harrisburg passed several constitutional amendments that you could eventually vote on.

Three bills that we've been following have passed in committee this morning.

They include a measure that would open up a two-year window of justice for victims of child sex abuse at the hands of Catholic priests.

Another would limit the disaster declaration powers of Governor Tom Wolf, saying any declarations he makes would only last 21 days and would need legislative approval to be extended.

The third would change how we vote for statewide judges.

If these bills pass in the House and Senate, it would go to a ballot for voters to have the final say.
