Support McGeehan, Rozzi Amendments – Protect Kids, Not Predators!
Although the Task Force for Child Protection made recommendations for new laws dealing with child sexual abuse, it failed to take up the most powerful tool designed to expose predators and to afford victims the justice they deserve.
HB 342, a bill on the voting calendar for next week, may give us the opportunity to create a one time, two year window that suspends the civil statute of limitations to allow past victims of child sex abuse to be heard. It would allow access to the justice system so that suspects could be subpoenaed and deposed. The victim would still have to prove “gross negligence” and the current sovereign immunity defense for public employees would be suspended.
Rep. McGeehan and Rep. Rozzi will be offering child sex abuse statute of limitation amendments to HB 342.
It is critically important that you vote to protect children by supporting the McGeehan and Rozzi amendments.
It’s time to put the victims first.
