Schneiderman issues statement on Assembly passage of Child Victims Act

PRESS RELEASE


New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement, upon the Assembly passage of the Child Victims Act:

Today's Assembly passage of the Child Victims Act marks an important step forward in the fight to protect the survivors of child sex abuse. I thank Speaker Heastie and Assemblymember Rosenthal for their leadership.

The fact that the bill passed the Assembly with such an overwhelming bipartisan margin should send a clear message to the Senate: it's long past time to enact real, meaningful reform that will deliver justice to child sex abuse victims across New York.

I urge the Senate to seize this moment and finally make the Child Victims Act a reality in New York. Survivors deserve no less.
