A bipartisan group of senators this week announced their hopes for an upcoming vote on a package of seven bills that address domestic violence in Pennsylvania.
The bills ultimately passed the Senate Wednesday, with one of the bills headed to the governor’s desk.
“Now I’m sure each member would have liked to get more here or there in this bill, but this is what we can achieve together and it is significant,” Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-Centre) said.
The package includes SB 449 from Sen. Camera Bartolatta (R-Greene), also known as Tierne’s Law, which helps judges limit bail for domestic abusers, as well as SB 1011 from Sen. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Allegheny).
