WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, Bryan Steil released a statement after voting to reauthorize the bipartisan Violence Against Women Act.
“We must protect women and girls from heinous crimes. The programs funded under VAWA support survivors, coordinate efforts between health officials and law enforcement agencies, and increase education and prevention efforts. Domestic abuse is too serious of an issue for political games.”
VAWA expired on February 15 after House leadership failed to bring an extension to the House floor.
