On Tuesday, CALCASA  kicked off our first hearing of the session testifying in support of AB 261 which eliminates the statute of limitations on most sex crimes.  Authored by Assemblywoman Sally Leiber, the bill passed out of committee on a unanimous vote!

The coalition was pleased that Chairman Solorio allowed focused testimony from proponents, particularly the excellent comments offered by San Francisco District Attorney Kamala D. Harris.

Committee members (in particular Ma, Leno and Portantino) considered the bill carefully and asked excellent questions and made statements of support for sexual assault victims and their quest for justice.
