    BSA President and CEO Roger Mosby said in a statement: “BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children.”

    “Scouting programs will continue throughout this process and for many years to come,” the statement also said. ”Local councils are not filing for bankruptcy because they are legally separate and distinct organizations.”
