Washington House Passes Erin’s Law, Moves To Senate

The Washington State House of Representatives unanimously passed 14th District Representative Gina McCabe’s bill to establish age-appropriate, sexual abuse prevention curriculum in schools.  Known as Erin’s Law for childhood sexual abuse survivor Erin Merryn, House Bill 1539 instructs the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to establish a coordinated program to provide age-appropriate information and training pertaining to the prevention of sexual abuse of students, and disseminate existing information and curricula to school districts.  McCabe says for some students, school may be their only escape from sexual abuse.  Currently, 31 other states have enacted Erin’s Law legislation.  The bill now advances to the Senate for further consideration.
