Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison Applauded for Principled Stand on VAWA Bill
Washington, DC/April 18, 2012 – Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison recently announced her support for an alternative to the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) reauthorization bill S. 1925, which had been introduced by Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont. The Texas senator’s announcement has earned her praise from advocates for victims of domestic violence.
In a letter to the Des Moines Register, Sen. Hutchison outlined a number of objections to S. 1925 and indicated that she is working with Sen. Chuck Grassley and Sen. Amy Klobuchar on an improved domestic violence bill. http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20120406/OPINION/304060009/-1/SPORTS12/Grassley-plan-will-strengthen-anti-violence-law-women

Sen. Hutchison stressed that she is behind a nonpartisan effort to protect all victims of domestic violence: “Violence against women isn’t a partisan issue.”
SAVE spokesman Philip W. Cook declared: “Senator Hutchison’s support for VAWA reform is laudable, though not surprising, given her longstanding commitment to the wellbeing of American women. We welcome the courageous voice of such a powerful advocate.”
