Excerpt: If it weren’t for an error made by the Department of State, the window for child sex abuse survivors would have appeared on the May primary election ballot as a proposed constitutional amendment. Restarting the amendment process in response to the mistake, the House and Senate passed legislation that would put the issue on the ballot in 2023. The bill must pass in both chambers in the next session before going to the Department of State for advertising.
