Oregon U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is pushing for Congress to renew the "Violence Against Women Act " that is slated to expire soon.  The Senate passed their version with strong bi-partisan support.  But the House Bill contains provisions affecting the treatment of Native American and gay victims of abuse that the White House threatened to veto.  Senator Wyden is disturbed to see lawmakers playing politics on what should be a bipartisan issue.  “The Senate has passed it, with strong support of Democrats and Republicans.  Now in the House discussion, some want a social proxy against gay folks not a time to play politics.  Got to get the law renewed especially for rural Oregon.  This supplies a lifeline protecting women against brutal violence.”  Wyden held a forum Friday morning with local leaders who deal with domestic abuse in Central Oregon.

 

Wyden wants Congress to pass the "Violence Against Women Act" in July, so it  won't become more political as the Presidential Election approaches.
