Toohil Receives Award from Marsy’s Law Organization
3/15/2019
HARRISBURG – Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) has been recognized by the Marsy’s Law for Pennsylvania organization for her support of legislation aimed at providing equal rights to crime victims by ensuring constitutional protections.

The Guardian of Victims’ Rights Awards are presented to individuals who have served as advocates and ambassadors for crime victims across the state, working to ensure they are treated with dignity and respect.

“I am honored to be recognized for my work fighting for victims’ rights. Thank you,” said Toohil. “I support the national effort to institute Marsy’s Law in every state in our nation. Pennsylvania is on the cusp of applying better protections in our Constitution for victims’ rights. Most importantly, victims of crime should be offered the right to come to every hearing. The right to be notified of court dates, hearings, and the release of the defendant from prison are all rights that should be codified so we can better protect victims of crime.”

Marsy’s Law legislation, House Bill 276, was recently passed by the House Judiciary Committee and sent to the full House of Representatives for consideration. For the state constitution to be amended, legislation must pass in two consecutive legislative sessions before being added to the ballot for voter approval. During the 2017-18 legislative session, Marsy’s Law passed unanimously in the House and Senate.
