Hagan decries opposition to Violence Against Women Act

Sen. Kay Hagan today said the Violence Against Women Act has run into opposition in the House of Representatives. Last year was the first year that Congress didn’t reauthorize the legislation since it was passed in 1994. The VAWA provides federal funds for services for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence and for prosecution of rapists. “The Violence Against women Act has never been used as a political football before,” Hagan said in a conference call.
