HARRISBURG - Gov. Corbett signed into law Monday three child-protection bills, part of the ongoing effort to transform the way the state handles child-abuse cases following the Jerry Sandusky case.
The legislation, which emerged from a task force created after the indictment of the former assistant football coach at Pennsylvania State University, will create a statewide database to track reporting of child abuse and provide dedicated funding for Child Advocacy Centers.
"The bills I am signing into law today are another step forward in the fight to end child abuse," Corbett said. "Today, Pennsylvania says 'no more' to child abuse."
