Walsh Supports Passage of the Child Victims Act

A statement from Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R,C,I,Ref-Ballston)

“Today, the New York state Assembly passed the Child Victims Act, a piece of significant legislation that changes the statute of limitations for victims of abuse. While the one year look-back period could be problematic for individuals who have decades-old cases, at least our state has finally moved forward with this important change. This is a cathartic step that will help those who have been victimized begin to heal.”
