House Republicans showcase steps forward in supporting crime victims

House Republican members joined in the Main Rotunda Wednesday to show their support for victims of abuse. 

The chamber has passed more than a dozen bills this month that House Republican's claim are related to supporting crime victims and abuse survivors. The House also acted in some fashion on all of the recommendations from the grand jury investigation that looked into the sexual abuse that was taking place in the Catholic Church. House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler(R-Lancaster) stated that by the end of today's session, all four recommendations will have passed through the house. He could not speak on what the Senate would do next.
