WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and U.S. Representatives Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), and Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) [Wednesday] called on the Senate to take long-overdue action on their bipartisan bill to keep sexual predators out of our kids’ classrooms.
“Since January 1 of this year, over 325 teachers and other school employees across America have been arrested for sexual misconduct with children .That is more than one per school day,” said Sen. Toomey. “Every story represents a tragedy, a childhood shattered, and a family torn by grief, betrayal, and self-blame. I am grateful for the support of those here today that have seen, or experienced, these tragedies first-hand. As our children are going back to school, it is time for the Senate to act to keep our kids safe.”
