Time to Shine Tonight! #ThisShouldBeEasy
Hot off the email press: The Senate Judiciary Committee will be meeting soon to vote YEA or Nay to HB 1947â€™s revival section.
There is a good chance they want to gut HB 1947, preventing any survivor of any age from filing a civil suit against their predators and those who hid the crimes, if that survivor is barred by current time limits.
EMAIL/ CALL SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TONIGHT- It could mean the difference between the law being passed or the law being gutted of any significant power for current adult victims.
POINTS To Emphasis:
- NO member of the Judiciary Committee, let alone ANY member of the General Assembly, is a constitutional expert on statutes of limitation for child sex abuse. This is absolutely a matter for the courts decide.
- We want the Senate Judiciary Committee to run HB 1947, without STRIPPING Rozziâ€™s retroactive amendment or ADDING other amendments. This reform legislation has been vetted in 4 grand jury reports and even Greenleaf noted that the underlying issues are understood and indefensible.
- TO ALL Senate Members: the SPOTLIGHT is on them and that their constituents and the press are watching every move.
