President Trump signs a bill to begin eliminating the backlog of untested rape kits to provide funding through the Department of Justice to State and local governments. The White House said the Debbie Smith Reauthorization Act of 2019 will ensure that “criminals are brought to justice,” according to a statement from Stephanie Grisham.
In total, the legislation will provide almost $200 million dollars, with $151 million of it being allocated to the Debbie Smith DNA Backlog Grant Program.
As usual, our President is leading and doing. This is what great leaders do- they lead! Thank you Mr. President.
