Success! The National VOCA Fix Act passed!

The VOCA Fix Act passed the Senate unanimously! The Toomey amendment failed 60-40, and the VOCA fix is on its way to President Biden's desk for a signature. Thank you so much to everyone for their help with this critical legislation! According to Rachel Graber of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, disbursement will probably take a year because the vote was very close to the end of the fiscal year and money hasn't had a chance to accrue to the VOCA Fund. In the long term, however, this fix is expected to stabilize the Fund and prevent future catastrophic cuts. Both Oregon Senators Wyden and Merkley voted to support this bill. Thank you, Senators!
