Federal Bill S2301: “The Amy and Vicky Child Pornography Victim Restitution Improvement Act of 2014” in Response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Ruling in Paroline v. United States

This post is a follow-up to the April 23, 2014 post on the decision in Paroline v. United States from the U.S. Supreme Court. 

As expected per a May 6 article written by PROTECT’s Grier Weeks U.S. Senators Orrin Hatch and Senator Chuck Schumer have proposed legislation to “fix” the Child Pornography restitution statute. 

As of today Co-Sponsors of SB2301 are:
1.       Cornyn, John [R-TX]
5.       Klobuchar, Amy [D-MN]
7.       McCain, John [R-AZ]
8.      Murray, Patty [D-WA]

This bill has been assigned to the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary. 

I will be reviewing the  text for S2301 to determine if an action alert should be posted. I will also be watching the hearing schedule for the Senate Judiciary Committee and if a hearing is scheduled I may just attend. 

Stay tuned.
