The Senate Judiciary committee has approved re-authorization of the "Victims of Child Abuse Act."
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions introduced the act which provides funding to child advocacy centers across the country. Senator Sessions says, those advocacy centers have played a critical role in investigating child abuse and providing care to victims.
He went on to say there's nothing more important than protecting the nation's children. In addition to child advocacy centers, the victims of child abuse act also provides funding for the regional children's advocacy center programs, The National Children's Alliance and the National Children's Advocacy Center.
