Transcript Bill Passes Both Houses The rape reform legislation, House bill 284 and Senate bill 63, passed both houses early in May and is awaiting the Governor's signature. HRCC would appreciate copies of letters to and from legislators and the governor, particularly letters of thanks to Representatives Kay Bailey and Sarah Weddington. In the version that finally passed some good things were removed, such as the definition of consent that we were hoping would make it. But a number of other good things are still in: threat can be communicated by actions, words, or deeds; evidence of victim's sexual conduct may be admitted only if, and only to the extent that, the judge finds it relevant as evidence in the case; statute of limitations extended to three years. Rape: A Houston Concern Medical, legal, law enforcement and rape crisis center personnel met in Austin for a three-day statewide conference on "Rape: A Texas Concern" to focus on the ways that agencies can work together to facilitate services for the rape victim and to secure convictions. Emphasis was placed on keeping a personal touch in all the work that must be done when a case of rape is reported. Special programs in hospitals as well as a sympathetic approach by detectives were proposed as the most productive means of assuring the well-being of the victim and promoting her continued assistance in the prosecution. The work being done by the Austin Rape Crisis Center has encouraged many women to come forward when attacked, because they know they will receive supportive services. The rate of reported rapes is up o"5fo in that county and the increase is attributed to the cooperation among all the systems a woman must deal with once she becomes a rape statistic. While it seemed as if every major city in Texas except Houston has a working procedure for rape victims, Houston's hopefully will not be too much longer in arriving. The city has submitted a grant proposal to the Criminal Justice Department for the establishment of a professionally staffed service to aid rape victims from the time of the attack to the time they no longer need supportive services. For more specific information on the conference, contact Alice Shrader, Summer Milton or Bette Anne Knoll. If you contact the city or county government to encourage them to set up these programs, please leave copies of your correspondence at the center to share with HRCC. EDITOR'S NOTE: The next issue of the newsletter will probably be out mid-August or early September with lots of summer progress reports and plans for action for the fall. Anyone wanting updates on information here or wishing to volunteer for any project should call the Women's Center, 524-5743» and we will return your call. Thanks!
