In an unprecedented move, it seems that VAWA is back on the table. It will be re-introduced in a bi-partisan move. Our law firm welcomes this move. VAWA has helped thousands who are victims of domestic violence and we hope this time, no Congress person will block any of its provisions.
A report from AILA.org reads the following:
H.R. 11, S. 5 and S. 47, three bills to Reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act of 1994, have been introduced by Rep. Moore (D-WI), Sen. Reid (D-NV) and Sen. Leahy (D-VT) respectively in the 2013 Congress. Both Senate bill have bi-partisan support.
