Harrisburg, PA, Sept. 26, 2018 — CeaseFirePA is pleased that the PA House of Representatives today passed HB 2060 by a vote of by 131-62. This bill takes important steps to disarm domestic abusers and make Pennsylvania families safer. CeaseFirePA has been proud to stand with the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and working with constituents across the Commonwealth to pass this critical legislation.
This bill now moves to the Senate, where the first step should be a vote in the Judiciary Committee. We have been told Chairman Greenleaf may call a vote on Tuesday. We will continue to fight for the passage of this bill in hopes it will reach Governor Wolf’s desk before the end of the session.
Shira Goodman, Executive Director of CeaseFirePA, said: “CeaseFirePA is proud that thousands of calls, emails and visits were delivered to Pa legislators to demand that PA families and victims of domestic abuse get the protection they need. We know that Pennsylvanians are watching to see if their legislators will stand up for victims and for safety. We hope they will.”
