How NC delegation voted on Violence Against Women Act

Posted February 28, 2013

The Violence Against Women Act renews a 1994 law that has set the standard for how to protect women, and some men, from domestic abuse and prosecute abusers.

Both of North Carolina's Senators and the entire Democratic contingent in the House voted in favor of the bill. House Republicans voted against it, except for Patrick McHenry (R-10th) who voted for the bill and Howard Coble (R-6th) who did not vote.
