Senate fails to vote to renew Violence Against Women Act

According to this story today from the Episcopal News Service, the U.S. Senate has failed to renew the Violence Against Women Act.

The 1994 Act was scheduled to expire today, September 30, 2005.

According to the Senate website the Senate adjourned at 3:04 PM without voting on HR 3402, which had passed in the House by a 415 to 4 margin. This failure to act leaves many programs with an uncertain future.
