Upton Pushes For Re-Authorization Of Domestic Violence Act
Congressman Fred Upton is among the members of Congress who have signed a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy urging an immediate re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
He tells WSJM News the 1994 act provides funding to protect people from domestic violence.
"Somehow it expires at the end of the month, and there is no way that we should allow that to happen,” Upton said. “Domestic violence is something that is sadly with us today, and there is a bi-partisan effort, which I’m a part of, to make sure that we don’t go home before the end of the fiscal year without passing a continuation of the Violence Against Women Act.”
