U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement after the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs voted Savanna’s Act out of committee and onto the Senate floor today:

“Thank you to Chairman Hoeven for advancing this bill and to Senator Murkowski for her unwavering support of this effort. Savanna’s Act is meaningful legislation which seeks to address violence against the most vulnerable members of our Native American communities. Its passage is long overdue, and I urge the full Senate to act on it quickly.”

Senator Cramer helped reintroduce this legislation in January.
