Elder abuse, neglect and exploitation are alarming issues that must be addressed by Congress. The Elder Justice Act (H.R. 1783) will provide the federal resources that are needed to prevent and prosecute this increasing form of abuse. That is why I am proud to stand with a bipartisan coalition to introduce this measure. Working with my colleagues and the Elder Justice Coalition, I am confident that we can enact this legislation which will help protect the security and rights of our nation's seniors.
