State Rep. Donna Howard zeros in sex assault legislation

Austin State Rep. Donna Howard says she will continue to focus on sexual assault legislation this session.
Howard believes there are infrastructure gaps in how survivors of sexual assault are supported. Howard will try to find ways to invest in supporting those victims and shoring up the system on a statewide level.
In the last session, Howard said a system to track rape kits was something she championed and is now being rolled out.
