From Fox31, about the U.S. Congressman and moderate-liberal Democrat's push for reauthorize the Act: "2nd District Georgia Congressman Sanford Bishop has joined with multiple colleauges for a bipartizan urge to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. 'We write today asking you to move quickly on the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) by bringing a bill inclusive of protections for all victims of domestic violence, similar to that which has already passed the Senate, to the House floor for a vote during these final weeks of the 112th Congress,' the letter states. 'The Violence Against Women Act is crucial for the victims of domestic violence and those agencies and organizations who serve them. We must send the President a strong, bipartisan bill that protects all those vulnerable to domestic violence.'"
