AG Urges Senate to Pass Bills


Attorney General Josh Shapiro says recommendations from a state grand jury report that found that priests sexually abused more than a thousand children over decades will pass if given a vote in Pennsylvania’s Senate.

Shapiro spoke Monday while greeting victims of sexual abuse demonstrating outside Senate offices.

Senate Republican leaders have not promised a vote on all four recommendations, and Senate President Pro Temp Joe Scarnati, says a recommendation that would change the statute of limitations is unconstitutional.

Shapiro’s office says it is constitutional and the House passed it overwhelmingly. Scarnati backs a church-created fund to compensate victims.

The Senate’s fall voting schedule ends this week.
