HB 1344, Erin’s Law which has already passed in numerous other states, was heard before Maryland’s House Judiciary Committee today. This bill will help educate children on what sexual abuse is so they can recognize when it is happening to them. Another bill that is in the works, HB 1389, complements this as a bill for educating teachers on looking for the signs of sexual abuse in children. Some however, see this as a bill that conflicts with HB 1344, but they would actually work quite well together. One educates children while the other educates teachers. Win – win. So pass both.
