Violence Against Women Act Reintroduced in House and Senate

On January 22, 2013, bills to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act were introduced in the Senate and House of Representatives.  S. 47, was introduced by U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID), along with 19 other co-sponsors.  The bill is substantially similar to the measure that passed the Senate last year, and includes the SAFER Act, which provides for audits of untested rape kits as well as additional tools to help law enforcement reduce the backlog of rape kits throughout the country.  An identical measure, HR 11, was introduced in the House by Congresswoman Gwen Moore and House Judiciary Committee Minority Leader John Conyers (D-MI) with 152 other co-sponsors.
