Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) voted today to extend the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). 

"The Violence Against Women Act is critical to prevent domestic violence and protect victims of heinous crimes," said Carter. "This legislation is far too important to be caught up in political games and I am alarmed that my Democratic colleagues continue to block extensions of this legislation as Congress works to reform VAWA. Survivors of domestic violence, and all women in America, absolutely deserve better than this. Congress must extend the Violence Against Women Act immediately." 

Carter voted today for a clean, one-year extension of the Violence Against Women Act which failed to pass the U.S. House of Representatives. He is also a cosponsor of H.R. 1741, the Violence Against Women Extension Act, which extends VAWA for one year.
