Thank you to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee for supporting Senate Bill 502 and moving it to the full Senate for consideration. Additional thanks to Senator Art Haywood and Senator Camera Bartolotta for supporting this bill. Crime victims and their families are already fighting through difficult times, which is why it is important we do what we can to ease the situation. This bill would help ensure victims are provided with complete information about the status of their cases, as well as making compensation for victim’s compensation more accessible and easier to use. I am hopeful this bill will become law in the near future.
Senator Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia/Montgomery)
