Boehner Vague on Violence Against Women Act

At a press briefing in Washington yesterday, House Speaker John Boehner (Republican–Ohio) offered no hints as to when the House would move to consider the Violence Against Women Act. "We're fully committed to doing everything we can to protect women in our society, and I expect that the House will act in a timely fashion in some way. No decision has been made about . . . . whether we take up the Senate bill or move our own version of the bill."
