house Bill H.R. 7292

Establishing a Federal Task Force on Sexual Assault

Argument in favor

Sexual assault is a serious crime that affects many Americans, both male and female. Hospitals should be properly equipped to handle these cases, including collecting vital evidence for future criminal proceedings. A task force is needed to ensure rape evidence and cases are handled properly.

Argument opposed

There are already numerous efforts to clear the national rape kit backlog, so part of this task force’s mandate is unnecessary. There’s also a bipartisan roundtable in Congress on sexual assault — so there’s no need to spend federal money and time to convene a task force on the same topic.
