Not one of those bills is sponsored by Representative Todd Eachus although he was Policy Chairman at the time. So what policy signal was he sending to his caucus?
He did sponsor this bill.

An Act amending the act of March 10, 1949 (P.L.30, No.14), known as the Public School Code of 1949, providing for background checks of school directors.
I guess background checks for school directors is more important than rape victims. Actually if you want to spend any time with children in the State of Pennsylvania school districts are required to have background checks on all individuals on file. The need for this bill seems redundant.
It should be noted there were no floor votes on either January 31, 2007 or February 1, 2007.
