(MissouriNET) - Missouri Senator McCaskill says the Violence Against Women Act saves lives and is calling on the House to end it's nine-month delay on renewing it. The Senate passed the bill with a bipartisan vote this week.
"It passed in 1994 and we began this wonderful continuum of care and services," says McCaskill.
"Women who had been assaulted by someone who purported to care about them, had a place they could go, had services they could receive, and had people who could help them through the criminal justice system."
McCaskill says she blames Republican leadership for not making the bill's renewal a priority in the House.
