|Subject:||Protection from Abuse Order Safeguards|
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to further provide protection for victims of domestic violence.
With the passage of the Protection from Abuse Act in 1976, Pennsylvania became the second state in the United States to enact legislation for the specific purpose of protecting victims of domestic abuse. Since that time, the Protection from Abuse Act has provided crucial and even lifesaving protections to thousands of victims of abuse;
Specifically, my legislation amends Title 23 (Domestic Relations) and does the following:
Please join me in protecting victims of domestic violence by co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Introduced as HB1247
