SOL Hero of the Month
May 2015 – Rep. Jason Spencer
Rep. Jason Spencer introduced and passed reform legislation, the Hidden Predator Act (HB 17, 2015), which extends the civil statute of limitations on childhood sexual abuse cases. The Hidden Predator Act allows survivors can gain access to justice and expose the identities of hidden pedophiles in the state of Georgia.
Tony and Doreen, good people pushing for good laws in IL!
Sen Jom Beall of CA for fighting the good fight for SB 131
Senator Maile S.L. Shimabukuro, Hawaii
Sen. Karen Peterson of Delaware is one of the leading pioneers in SOL reform in the United States. She led the charge to enact a window in 2007, and to eliminate the civil SOL that same year. When a technicality blocked the 2007 window from being applied to abusing health care professionals, she also led the charge to enacting a 2010 window that would apply to health care professionals in Delaware. Thanks Sen. Peterson for your vision and passion for the protection of children!
