Legislation

TurnAround supports legislation that directly positively impacts the clients that we serve. This year TurnAround provided testimony on bills that would:

 

  • Create a uniform storage policy for certain evidence in sexual assault cases
  • Remove the requirement that survivors prove they did forcibly resist their assailant to prove 2nd degree rape
  • Create working groups to study the rape kit backlog and safe harbor provisions for child victims of sex trafficking

The legislative session in Maryland starts in January.
