PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has signed Rep. Paul Boyer’s legislation, HB2466, which increases the amount of time a childhood sex assault victim could sue their alleged attacker.
I just signed #HB2466. This bill is an important step in providing victims of child sexual abuse the justice they deserve. Thank you to @PaulDBoyer and every legislator who worked to move this important legislation forward.

The bill creates a statute of limitations of 12 years after a plaintiff reaches 18 years of age for an action
for the recovery of damages.
A version of Boyer’s bill was passed this year by the Texas Legislature at the behest of the progressive Texas Association Against Sexual Assault and the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL).
