The Child Victims Act has been a matter of hot contention in the United States Senate for the better part of their term in office. The newest soldiers to join the fight have been an actor and activist Corey Feldman and a USA national team volleyball player Sarah Powers-Bernhard. They have formed a strong coalition tagging themselves as ‘New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators’. Their motive has received momentum and support from various strongholds who also want the Child Victims Act to finally pass as legislative action. The Senate bill which is sponsored by D-Manhattan, Brad Hoylman is aimed at eliminating all statutes of limitations when it comes to child sexual abuse cases in the state of New York. The bill would also allow that all civil action lawsuits no-matter the time filled be heard within a period of one year as opposed to the five-year time limit which is stipulated by the current statute of limitations.
Over recent years the Senate has passed different versions of the same bill, Linda Rosenthal recently wrote one. According to a Quinnipiac Poll done by the Senate Democrats, the bill is likely to go through as it has the support of over 90% of New Yorkers.
