HARRISBURG, Pa. - A commission set up by the Pennsylvania Legislature after Jerry Sandusky's molestation arrest last year is about to make its recommendations.

The Pennsylvania Task Force on Child Protection on Tuesday will outline suggested changes to state laws and procedures that protect children.

The 11-person group was set up by the state House and Senate. Its ranks include people from the legal profession, educators and health care workers.

Possible areas of focus include child abuse reporting, the need to pass new laws or amend existing laws, and improvements in training.

Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, is serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence after being convicted this summer of 45 counts of sexual abuse of boys.
