GREGORY OUTRAGED

Reps. Jim Gregory and Mark Rozzi expressed outrage Monday, after learning the Pennsylvania Department of State failed to properly advertise a constitutional amendment that would give victims of childhood sexual abuse recourse in civil court. Advertising the proposed amendment is a legal necessity before a referendum question can be put before voters in an election. They say we have now lost two years of work and they find it difficult to express the anger and outrage on behalf of the victims that once again are left empty handed. Now, they say it takes it all back to the starting point and means the earliest voters can choose to grant these protections will be the 2023 primary election.
