Sex Abuse Child Victim’s Act Goes to Special Committee Today

I’ve just been informed by a reliable source that a special committee of the NY State Legislature will consider both the Markey bill and the Lopez bill. As I’ve written in previous posts, the Markey bill is pro-justice and pro-survivor. It allows survivors a one year window to pursue justice against sexual predators and the institutions that protected them. The Lopez bill is nothing more than a bill that protects predators, hurts victims, and insulates institutions from their bad behavior.
According to my source, the committee will hear from both Markey and Lopez and either recommend one bill move forward, seek compromise legislation, or kill the measures outright. If you were sexually abused in NY and seek justice, please urge your legislators in NY to do the right thing and vote for the Markey bill.
