A Single GOP Congressman Is Blocking A Bill To Help Abused Native Women

 

December 18, 2018



WASHINGTON ― A bill to combat the appallingly high rates of missing and murdered Native women has stalled in the House, despite sailing through the Senate, because a single Republican congressman is mysteriously holding it up.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is blocking the bill, called Savanna’s Act, aimed at helping the federal government respond to the grim reality that 84 percent of Native women experience violence in their lifetime. They are murdered at 10 times the national average.
