U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) today released the following statement on the passage of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA):
"I am pleased the House and Senate came together in a bipartisan manner to pass the Violence Against Women Act. VAWA has proven to be extremely effective in protecting Pennsylvania women and supporting victims of abuse and assault. 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."
