Governor Wolf Signs HB 217, Child Endangerment Bill

Governor's Reception Room, Main Capitol Building, Harrisburg, PA

Governor Wolf will sign HB 217 which amends Tile 18, Section 4304 “Endangering the welfare of children.”

The new law will allow the courts to take into account the age of a child who is put in danger, as well as the degree of harm done in order to more accurately reflect the reality of the situation when deciding how to prosecute those who harm children.
