Corbet signed house bills 89 and 316, as well as Senate bill 24. The Senate bill created a statewide database, and allows for electric reporting of child abuse.
The House bills redirect money to the Children's Advocacy Center and establishes a committee to approve grants.
"Earlier today I had the opportunity to sign several child protection bills into law that will improve the reporting of suspected child abuse. Will coordinate that reporting better to create that state-wide database containing the files on all abuse of neglect allegations lodged against an individual," said Gov. Tom Corbett.
Corbett signed the laws Monday and spoke to a crowd that gathered in support of the issue.
