Dear PA Legislator,
House Bill 1947, with a retroactive provision, is supported by the following heroes:
- Attorney General Bruce Beemer,
- PA Victim Advocate, Jennifer Storm,
- Both Candidates for PA Attorney General- Josh Shapiro and Se. John Rafferty,
- 180 members of the PA House,
- Nationally Renowned Constitutional Law Experts,
- Dozens of advocate organizations for SOL Reform,
- Thousands of victims of child sex abuse,
- Tens of thousands of your constituents,
- AND Gov. Tom Wolf, who promised he would sign the bill when it got to his desk.
In the next weeks you, PA Legislator, will have the opportunity to add your name to our list of heroes by supporting HB 1947 with retroactivity.
- Let the process go forward,
- Let the courts decide the issue of constitutionality,
- Don’t wait for upcoming grand jury reports that will unearth more horrors of abuse and cover-up.
Victims- past, present and future – deserve justice, protection, and support from you!
If you are a concerned citizen, you can be a hero also. Call today and stand up for victims.
This bill will be considered by the PA House on 10/17 and will likely be amended the same day to include retroactivity. It will quickly move to the Senate for their consideration. It will likely die there unless they receive enough pressure from their state constituents.
Do not delay — Call today!
Steps you can take now to be a hero for all victims, past, present and future.
