Reps. Loretta Sanchez and Virginia Foxx fight for stronger anti-stalking laws

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47)

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) and Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) today introduced a tough new bill that would strengthen federal anti-stalking laws to address the new technology predators are using to harass their victims. In addition to clarifying existing laws, H.R. 196, the Simplifying the Ambiguous Law, Keeping Everyone Reliably Safe (STALKERS) Act of 2011, would give law enforcement authorities the tools they need to prevent and prosecute stalking in the digital age. The House of Representatives passed this legislation in the 111th Congress.
