CRS: Violence Against Women Act: History and Federal Funding (January 23, 2007) [pdf]

The 109th Congress failed to pass both the Science-State-Justice-Commerce (HR 5672) and the Departments of Labor-Health and Human Services-Educations appropriations (HR 5647 and S 3708) bills for FY2007. A third continuing resolution was enacted (PL 109-383; HJRes. 102) on December 9, 2006 that provided funding for VAWA programs through February 15, 2007 based on FY2006 funding levels. The appropriations process was completed by the 110th Congress.
