This Week in Washington the House has voted on reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (HR 4970), introduced by my friend Congresswoman Sandy Adams (R-FL).

The House will also be voting on the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013, as well as 143 amendments to the legislation. I will be supporting the Rigell-Landry-Gohmert amendment regarding detainee provisions, as well as the overall bill. We must make certain our troops have the best resources possible at their fingertips as they lay their lives on the line for all of us.
