Ortt: Passage Of CVA Was Needed, More Should Follow

A statement from Senator Rob Ortt (R,C,IP,Ref-North Tonawanda)

“Today’s passage of the Child Victims Act was necessary to help those who have been abused receive their day in court. The individuals who committed these despicable acts against children must answer for their actions and the public and private institutions that allowed these acts to go unchecked should be held responsible. It is my hope that the passage of this legislation will allow victims to begin the healing process following such heartbreaking acts. And I hope Assembly and Senate Democrats will recognize the narrow scope of this legislation and will work with us and work with victims so that ALL individuals who perpetrate such crimes are held accountable.”
