This measure is named for Private First Class Andy Long, shot and killed in front of a Little Rock, Arkansas military recruiting office by a self-proclaimed terrorist.
This bill is now law in numerous states. Andy's Law stiffens state criminal penalties for acts of terrorism. The law creates a civil cause of action empowering victims of terrorism to sue in state court those who provide material support and aid those who commit acts of terrorism.
