U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) today released the following statement on the Senate passage of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA):

"I am pleased the Senate came together today in a bipartisan manner to pass the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). VAWA has proven to be extremely effective in protecting Pennsylvania women and supporting victims of abuse and assault, and I call on the House to quickly pass this legislation so that these critical protections are not lost. I am particularly encouraged by the inclusion of my provisions to combat sexual violence on college campuses so that college campuses are safe and secure places to learn and work."
