Senator Roy Blunt Hopes to Assist Children’s Advocacy Centers
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt says federal legislation that passed the Senate in June and cleared the House this week should provide assistance to Missouri centers that help child victims of violent crimes. The legislation co-sponsored by Blunt reauthorizes a federal law that provides funding to children's advocacy centers, which conduct forensic interviews of children who have been the victims of abuse. The interviews can be used in court.
