Johnson Statement on the Passage of the Violence Against Women Act

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Tim Johnson today released the following statement on the Senate's passage of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act:

I am pleased the Senate again came together to pass the bipartisan reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. This bill helps provide a variety of resources to survivors of domestic violence and protects more Americans from violence, sexual assault, stalking and dating violence. It also includes important provisions to provide necessary and adequate protection to American Indian women who are 2.5 times more likely to be victims of domestic violence.

The Senate has now twice passed this reauthorization with a supermajority. It is time for the Republican-controlled house to accept the bipartisan version overwhelmingly agreed to in the Senate.
