Violence against women — Senate acts

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 6:39 AM

One to watch, because Arkansas Republicans haven't distinguished themselves on this issue previously.

The U.S. Senate will again push for reauthorization of support of programs that help women who've been victims of domestic violence. The Republican House killed the Senate-passed measure last session. It has been stripped of a complicating spending provision this go-round. It still extends aid to sexual minorities and Indians, a concept apparently unacceptable to many House Republicans.
