    State Senate committees yesterday voted in favor of four bills that would reform the statutes of limitations in sexual assault-related cases. The next step for each bill is a vote by the full Senate chamber. Members of the House of Representatives approved the set of bills earlier in 2019.

    PCAR supports legislation that reforms the criminal and civil statutes of limitation, including a retroactive window that would enable victims who are now time-barred to seek civil remedies.
