Working aggressively to combat rape and sexual assault in all settings has been a priority for this administration. As part of these continued efforts and building on the President’s call to action in 2010, the President and Vice President are convening a meeting today, Jan. 22, of the White House Council on Women and Girls at the Cabinet level along with the council representatives from each agency in the East Room of the White House to examine the progress that has been made and to renew a call to root out abuse wherever it exists and further protect Americans from rape and sexual assault.
HJRCA 1 (Marsy's Law) has passed out of both the Illinois Senate and House! The legislation would provide a constitutional admendment to enforce victim rights. The admendment will be included on the ballot in November and the Illinois public will have the opportunity to vote on the measure. For more information visit the 2014 legislation folder in the Legal Issues section of this website.
