The NJ Assembly Judiciary Committee will meet this morning in Trenton to hear testimony and consider a bill to make it easier for child sex abuse victims to take legal action against predators.
The hearing is set for 10 a.m. at the NJ State House in committee room 16, 4th floor of the annex building.
Several survivors and supporters who belong to a self help group called SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, will testify in support of bill A2405 which eliminates the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse.
