National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women
Statement on the House legislation filed today

Unfortunately, the National Task Force must oppose the House proposed VAWA legislation filed today.  This legislation lacks necessary protections for victims of violence and rolls back current law.  NTF supports efforts to move the House legislation closer to the inclusive, bipartisan Senate-passed bill.
