Debby Tucker, founding Chair of the National Network to End Domestic Violence acknowledges Judiciary Committee Chairman Brooks at a reception celebrating passage of the Violence Against Women Act

Congressman Jack Brooks (D-TX) served 42 years and chaired the House Judiciary Committee, decided, along with then Senator Joseph Biden, to include VAWA and Senator Ted Kennedy's bill to support the National Domestic Violence Hotline into his Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.  He also included the federal assault weapons ban, has been credited with contributing to the decline in crimes committed in the United States during the 1990s.  His papers are now at the BRISCOE CENTER for American History at The University of Texas at Austin. He was quite a character and story-teller extraordinaire!
