Connecticut lawmakers have reintroduced legislation that would extend – or no longer limit – how long victims of sexual abuse have to sue or pursue criminal action against their abusers. This comes after Catholic dioceses in the state released the names of more than 100 priests who were credibly accused of sexual abuse.

Bishop Michael Cote of the Diocese of Norwich, Connecticut, has released the names of 43 priests who have had "allegations of substance" made against them since 1953 about the sexual abuse of minors.

The list was posted on its website Sunday afternoon.

He said no priest or deacon currently in active ministry in the diocese is the subject of an allegation of substance regarding the sexual abuse of a minor.
