Biaggi, who is chairwoman of the state Senate’s newly invigorated Ethics Committee, also told City & State that the legislation she and Simotas are sponsoring reflect a more nuanced understanding of the way survivors may process their trauma. “One of the bills that really strikes me in a very real and important way is the statute of limitations bill,” Biaggi said. “Statute of limitations as it relates to sexual harassment has not historically been trauma-informed, meaning when someone is in a situation where they feel that they've been harmed or abuse or harassed, they don't ultimately right away, talk about it or share it with somebody, it usually takes a lot of time,” she said.
