Senator Killion DNA Legislation is Unanimously Approved by Senate Judiciary Committee
This week members of the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved my SB 461, which will modernize and strengthen the use of DNA technology to better fight violent crime in Pennsylvania.
DNA science has advanced dramatically in the two
decades since Pennsylvania’s DNA Database was created. Since then, the
federal government and more than half of the states have improved their DNA
collection and testing policies. Pennsylvania has not. This legislation will
make dramatic improvements in how Pennsylvania uses DNA technology to fight
crime, to get violent criminals off our streets, and to make our communities
My legislation, when we consider the New York model, will help solve crimes,
hold offenders accountable, and protect the innocent from being wrongfully
accused or convicted.
It was my pleasure to offer up a resolution recognizing this May as Blue Star Mothers of America Month in Pennsylvania. It is important that we recognize this organization for their continued dedication to active duty service personal and their families.
This week I stood with the PA Coalition Against Domestic Violence & the PA Coalition Against Rape at a rally in the Main Rotunda. I was able to speak two of my bills SB 461 and SB 501, which will both help in protecting victims.
Reminder: Open House May 6th
