House committee advances grand jury suggestion missing from statute bill

House committee advances grand jury suggestion missing from statute bill

The House-amended statute of limitations bill may hit snags in the Senate by lacking two grand jury suggestions, but Wednesday a bill to address a third was advanced by state representatives in committee.

Rep. Todd Stephen’s (R-Montgomery) HB 2641 would create stricter punishments for not reporting child abuse or suspicions of child abuse, as the grand jury on Catholic sexual abuse suggested when released last month.

Stephens bill clarifies penalties for those failing to report sexual abuse

Rep. Todd Stephens (R-Montgomery) joined The PLS Reporter to talk about his legislation, House Bill 2641.

The bill would clarify when higher penalties should apply to people who are required to report suspected child abuse, but fail to do so. 

Stephens is one of a handful of legislators who introduced legislation relating to the grand jury report that was released last month.
