Press Release

This week, the House of Representatives passed multiple pieces of legislation to protect America’s children. The legislation gives youth service organizations access to federal background check data, allows the public to know where sex offenders live, gives prosecutors the tools they need to prosecute criminals, strengthens the penalties for those who exploit children, and protects the victims of child pornography and sexual assault.

Congressman John Moolenaar supported the legislation and released the following statement:

“The legislation passed this week will protect Michigan children and their families. It gives more resources to parents and law enforcement and it strengthens penalties against criminals.”
