Co-Sponsor HR 1585: The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2019

March 29, 2019

We write to invite you to join us as a co-sponsor of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) of 2019.  In celebration of Women’s History Month this March, and in celebration of VAWA’s 25th Anniversary since enactment, we call on
all who care about these issues to stand with us as we seek to reauthorize VAWA in this 116th Congress.  VAWA 2013 expired on September 30, 2018.  We must act to address the urgent need to reauthorize these important provisions, while making the
modest enhancements that are reflected in VAWA 2019.

Support Employers of Reservists and National Guardsmen

March 29, 2019

Employers have borne a heavy burden since 9/11 as our Reserve forces transitioned from a Strategic Reserve model to an Operational Reserve.  One weekend a month and two weeks a year has yielded to repeated mobilizations and long deployments.  Since 2001,
“the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) has mobilized more than 280,000 soldiers, while the Army National Guard (ARNG) has mobilized almost twice that number, more than 525,000 soldiers.”[1]  An overlooked cost has fallen
on employers and colleagues, who frequently shoulder additional work.  As Co-Chairs of the National Guard and Reserve Caucus, we invite you to co-sponsor
H.R. 801, the Reserve Component Employer Incentive, Compensation, and Relief Act of 2019.  This will ease employers’ burden and incentivize hiring of Reservist and National Guardsmen.
