HARRISBURG (AP) – The PA Senate Judiciary Committee approved legislation to change the law to allow now-adult victims of child sexual abuse to sue their perpetrators or institutions that didn’t prevent it. The vote on House Bill 951 comes after years of investigations into child sexual abuse by clergy in PA’s Roman Catholic dioceses. It also signals that the measure may have enough GOP support to pass the full state Senate. Similar legislation passed the House earlier this month. Many childhood victims of sexual assault lost the right to sue in Pennsylvania when they turned 18 or were young adults.
