President Obama signed The Violence Against Women Act 2013 Reauthorization into law just about 25 minutes ago. The law is quite extensive, and every American should take time to read it, at least once.
But that said, here’s a summary of the bill, followed by a copy of the legislation itself.
The The Violence Against Women Act 2013 Reauthorization was introduced by Democratic Vermont Senator Pat Leahy. The law, now signed into action by President Obama, will do the following:
– Improves response of the healthcare system to domestic violence reports and incidents.
– Works to provide transitional housing assistance for domestic violence victims.
– Provides grants to Indian tribal organizations toward the safety of Indian women.
– Reinstates the laws prohibiting cyberstalking.
And that’s just a few of the 1,264 sections of the legislation. To see the entire bill, you can scroll through it here:
