(Harrisburg) -- A state House resolution seeking a federal investigation of the Jerry Sandusky case appears to be dead for the current legislative session after Republicans blocked another effort to bring it to a vote.
The House voted several times today against a Democratic-led attempt to bring the resolution to the floor.
Supporters want the U.S. attorney's office to look into whether the three-year probe of allegations against the former Penn State assistant football coach took too long and put children's safety at risk.
Sandusky is vowing to appeal after being sentenced last week to at least 30 years in state prison for sexual abuse of 10 boys.
Penn State has confirmed federal prosecutors sought a wide range of Sandusky-related materials, but the target and nature of their investigation aren't clear.
