Council passes resolution supporting Marsy’s Law

Philadelphia City Council Thursday passed a resolution supporting the efforts from Harrisburg to pass Marsy’s Law, a change to state code that offers more protection to victims of crime.

The bill passed through the state’s House of Representatives with a wide, bipartisan vote on Monday. Sen. John Sabatina (D-Philadelphia) has sponsored the Senate’s version, which if passed would go before voters on the November general election ballot.
