Local lawmakers introduce bill for child sexual abuse task force

Sen. John Grabinger, D-Jamestown, and Rep. Bernie Satrom, R-Jamestown, are sponsoring a bill that would create a task force on preventing sexual abuse of children and reporting recommendations for legislation.

Senate Bill 2342 was introduced by Grabinger and had a hearing in the Human Services Committee on Jan. 30. No vote or other action has been taken since.

The task force would gather information concerning child sexual abuse throughout the state, receive testimony and reports from individuals, state and local agencies and organizations, and create goals for state policy that would prevent child sexual abuse during the 2017-2018 interim period. The task force would submit a final report with recommendations to the governor and legislative management, which is a group of legislators who determine interim studies and committee memberships.

Child sexual abuse: Agencies to get £40m funding boost

Ministers have pledged £40m towards the fight against child sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking.
The cash will go towards bringing offenders to justice, targeting online exploitation, and protecting vulnerable children at risk of trafficking.
A new £7.5m “centre of expertise” will be set up to offer support and guidance to professionals on the front line.
But councils are warning that a “funding gap” of £1.9bn could put child protection services at risk.
In 2015, the government published a new strategy for addressing failures in child protection across England in response to the Rotherham abuse scandal – in which more than 1,400 children were abused between 1997 and 2013.
