Child Victims Act passes Minn. House; still not done deal

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota House lawmakers on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly in favor of a bill that would allow victims of child sexual abuse more time to sue abusers and institutions that failed to protect them.

The final tally – 115 votes in favor and seven opposed – came as a surprise to the bill’s author, Rep. Steve Simon, DFL-Hopkins.
