A bill authored by Oregon 52nd District State Representative Anna Williams to increase the state’s share of funding children’s advocacy centers in the state from 17 percent to 30 percent, add a staff person at the Oregon Department of Education to implement the “Erin’s Law” child abuse prevention curriculum in schools, and fund a study of abuse children have witnessed rather than just what is reported is close to reaching the House floor.  The Hood River Democrat is optimistic about the bill’s future, saying there is bipartisan support to move forward.  The bill is currently back in the House Rules Committee to deal with a typographical error in it, but Williams expects it to get to the House floor and eventually moved to the Senate.
