The GOP-controlled House of Representatives has passed Senate Bill S.47, which re-authorizes the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), by a vote of 286 to 138. This bi-partisan version of the measure includes protections for LGBT people, as well as undocumented immigrants and Native Americans. Those provisions had been stripped from an earlier House version of the bill.
