Do not host or attend gatherings. The House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, chaired by Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint), has approved legislation to expand liability protections for donated food that may be past its stamped date code. “Far too much food is wasted because people mistake the date coding as a measure of food safety when it is actually just a manufacturer’s estimation of when the food would be of the best quality,” Causer said. “Food can still be eaten and enjoyed after that date, and we want to make sure people understand that, especially now with so many people in need and concerns rising about our food supply chain.” House Bill 2477 would amend the free-standing Donated Food Limited Liability Act to specifically limit the criminal and civil liability for persons who donate food that is fit for human consumption but is past a date code on the food item. The donor must make a good faith evaluation that the food is fit for human consumption. While current state and federal laws offer liability protection for food donations made to nonprofit organizations, the existing protections do not apply to donations of food made to organizations other than nonprofits, nor do they specifically protect donations of food that are beyond the date codes. The bill passed the committee by a unanimous vote and now goes to the full House for consideration. Rep. Clint Owlett’s (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) bill to better support children who are victimized as they seek justice was passed today by the House State Government Committee. “By far, one of our most important responsibilities as a society is to protect the health and safety of our children,” Owlett said. “While we do the very best we can to protect our children from being victimized, we also need to have the tools in place to ensure justice is served when crimes are committed against them.” House Bill 2342 would amend the state’s Tender Years Hearsay Act, which permits the introduction of hearsay statements concerning violent or sexual offenses. Currently, a victim must be age 12 or younger to allow hearsay statements in the case. xq livraison gratuite 2015 bijoux de mode europeens et americains retro texture exageree longue chaine de chandail collier modeles feminins Owlett’s bill would increase the maximum age to 16.   “The Tender Years exception is a vital tool in delivering justice for some of the most heinous crimes committed against young children,” Owlett said. “Extending its availability to our older children is absolutely necessary to protect them and potentially prevent offenders from victimizing others.” A fear of testifying is one of the primary reasons many sexual assaults go unreported. Child victims in sexual assault cases who do testify are routinely subjected to long periods of cross examination and are often forced to repeatedly describe the explicit details underlying any assault in front of a jury, the media and the offender. By extending the age from 12 to 16 in the Tender Years Hearsay Act, this legislation will provide additional protections to child victims and will ensure that offenders are brought to justice. bracelet cuir 16mm braceletpascher1152 Owlett said the idea for the bill was given to him by local constituent. perle de culture boucle doreille 718braceletpascher4009 “It is my job to bring the voice of the people of the 68th Legislative District to Harrisburg, and that includes sharing your ideas and working to advance them through the legislative process.” The bill now goes to the full House for consideration.
