Statement by Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos on Bill Preventing Prohibiting Access of Child Pornography

June 17, 2012

“Viewing child pornography is a despicable act. This legislation will help protect children by imposing tough new penalties on people who view or possess child pornography. I applaud Senator Golden for his leadership on this issue which is at the top of the Senate’s criminal justice agenda, and I thank Governor Cuomo for working with us to achieve a bipartisan agreement.”
