Legislative Female Update

After months of Republican stalling, the Senate unanimously voted yesterday to pass the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, an anti-crime bill that includes the Sex Trafficking Victims Protection Act and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). The law codifies VAWA for five years and authorizes $3 billion in funds for sexual assault and domestic violence prevention, including sexual assault prevention training for judges, battered women's services, state-based services for victims of domestic violence, and transitional housing for victims of domestic violence. The law authorizes $94.5 million for victims of sex trafficking, creates special visas for victims of trafficking and slavery, and doubles the current maximum penalty for sex trafficking. In addition, the bill specifies that the United States withhold certain aid from governments who fail to enforce the provisions. -feminist.org

Equity Loan

Home equity loan is a kind of financial loan in which the borrower operates the equity in their home as monetary deposit. These loans are useful to help sponsor major home restoration, prescription bills or college preparation. A home equity loan creates a lien against the borrower's house building, and reduces actual home equity.
