Governor Cuomo Announces Child Victims Act to be Included in 2019 Executive Budget


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the Child Victims Act will be included in the 2019 Executive Budget. This legislation ensures those who abuse children are held accountable criminally and civilly and that survivors of childhood sexual abuse have a path to justice. Governor Cuomo advocated for passage of the Child Victims Act last legislative session but Senate Republicans refused to bring it to the floor for a vote. Governor Cuomo included the Child Victims Act as part of his Justice Agenda for the first 100 days of the new legislative session.
