Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy Outlines Committee’s Priorities
For The New 113th Congress

Senator Patrick Leahy Wednesday listed issues ranging from immigration reform to renewing the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) among his top priorities for the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he will again chair in the new 113th Congress.

Speaking before students, reporters and others at the Georgetown University Law Center has become a tradition for Senator Leahy at the start of each new two-year Congress.  He discussed key issues that he will bring before the committee, which is the Senate’s busiest panel.

On a day in which President Obama and Vice President Obama released White House recommendations to address gun violence, Senator Leahy also announced that he will convene Congress’s first hearing on gun violence since the shootings a month ago in Newtown, Conn.  He said the Senate Judiciary Committee’s first hearing on gun violence topics will be held in two weeks, on Jan. 30.
