Brewster Comments on Domestic Abuse Violence Prevention Legislation

Senator Brewster Delivers Floor Remarks on HB 2060 – Protections for Victims of Domestic Violence
Watch Floor Remarks

State Sen. Jim Brewster issued the following comments related to the Senate’s passage of the domestic abuse violence prevention act. 

The bill which would provide additional protections for domestic violence victims who have Protection From Abuse (PFA) orders, passed the Senate today 43-5.  Brewster supported the measure and provided remarks on the Senate floor about the bill.

A previous measure (Senate Bill 501) which was designed to prevent violence and protect victims of domestic abuse by removing guns from abusers passed the Senate unanimously in April.   

Brewster’s statement follows:

“The action today by the Senate was a step forward in addressing domestic violence situations.  Our work, however, is not finished.  We need to be diligent and study new and improved ways to stop domestic violence in its tracks. 

“The approach identified in the new legislation makes sense.  I supported this bill and its predecessor, Senate Bill 501, because they outline a way to reduce violence and protect abuse victims from escalating violence.  I believe we need to go further and provide even greater protections and prevent violence not only from guns but from other means of violence.”
