Fiscal Impact of SOL Reform
This page contains information regarding the fiscal impact of reviving expired statutes of limitations (SOLs) and extending existing criminal and civil SOLs. All too often when children are abused, society is forced to shoulder the costs. The Child Victims Act shifts the cost of abuse from the individual and the state to the ones who caused it. It saves the taxpayers from having to pay for the crimes of perpetrators and the institutions that enable them. This is because more victims would be able to sue rather than being relegated solely to the state for support when the ravages of child sex abuse affect their lives in the form of depression, PTSD, substance abuse, and other problems. See below for more information on specific states.
