Biggert continues to clash with GOP on domestic violence bill
May 24, 2012 6:15 PM -
Congresswoman Judy Biggert's first attempt to include language in domestic violence legislation that would ensure protection for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community and undocumented immigrants failed. On Thursday, she met with a group of local domestic violence experts to try to find ways to get those protections back into the legislation, which will likely end up in a conference committee. This push marks a significant break from the GOP party for Biggert.
