MOUNT CARMEL — Monday marks two years since Gov. Tom Wolf signed the Timothy J. Piazza Antihazing Law that was prompted by the death of the 19-year-old Penn State student following a night of drinking at a fraternity.

Piazza died from severe head and abdominal injuries after suffering a series of falls in February 2017. Senate Bill 1090, which was unanimously passed by the General Assembly and co-sponsored by Sen. John Gordner, strengthened penalties for hazing; created a safe-harbor provision; holds organizations accountable for promoting hazing; and requires schools to have antihazing rules.
