President Obama signs Dodd’s bill to protect children and victims of domestic violence

Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) released a statement after President Obama signed into law Dodd’s Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) reauthorization bill, which will strengthen federal efforts to identify, treat, and prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children. This bill also reauthorizes the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), which helps states prevent domestic violence and provides services to victims of domestic violence and their families.

“Today is a victory for the safety of our nation’s children and families. The number of children abused or neglected and individuals affected by domestic and dating violence is astounding and intolerable,” said Dodd. “We have an enormous responsibility to protect our most vulnerable citizens. With the signing of the CAPTA reauthorization bill, President Obama is ensuring that our states will have the resources to combat child abuse and neglect and that victims of violence and abuse will get the help they need. States will now be able to fund critical services that will provide a better life and future for all of our nation’s children and families.”
