New life for VAWA
A revamped version of the Violence Against Women Act has bipartisan support in Congress.

Originally enacted in 1995 and later amended to give tribes more authority to hold domestic abusers and other violent offenders accountable, the law expired in 2018.

Congressional lawmakers supporting the reauthorization say it includes provisions allowing tribes to go after non-Native perpetrators of sexual violence.
