Liblick’s campaign for the law has generated some results. The board of the Town of Bethel on February 26 voted to send a letter to state lawmakers to urge passage of Paula’s Law. The resolution read, in part, “When it comes to protecting our most vulnerable and loving members of society, the OPDD have been negligent.”

Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther has sponsored the bill in the Assembly, and Sen. David Carlucci has sponsored the bill in the Senate. Sen. John Bonacic has supported the bill in committee.
