The measure would have created a two-year window for those abuse victims to file lawsuits against organizations where the abuse occurred. Lawmakers heard emotional testimony from a woman. She described how she and other young children were raped and abused during the 1950s and 1960s at a Catholic boarding school for Native Americans.
For nearly a decade, a group of nine sisters has made their case to a lawmaker in Pierre. The women argued that lawmakers' inaction keeps organizations unaccountable for sexual abuse and could allow future abuse.
