Knesset in Last-Minute Legislation for Battered Women


The Knesset's Labor, Welfare and Health Committee has approved the final version of a bill granting an acclimitization stipend to a woman who stayed in a battered women's shelter. The bill is now ready for the Knesset to vote upon in the second and third readings, and is expected to pass just as the Knesset is about to dissolve itself pending new elections.
