2013 Legislature: Testimony in favor of reporting domestic violence statistics

Testimony given by Stan Rasmussen Monday, March 4, before the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee in support of Rep. Lee Perry’s Domestic Violence Statistics Reporting (HB 361):

Thanks, Mr. Chairman, and good morning, Representatives.

We commend Representative Perry for bringing this bill. We believe that this information will increase the understanding of domestic violence and will help state policymakers, such as yourselves, to understand better these circumstances and to develop policies that curb such violence in ways that strengthen families and protect innocent victims. For these reasons we would encourage your support of the bill. Thank you.
