Press Release from Congresswoman Annie Kuster
December 7, 2022
Washington, D.C. — Today, President Joe Biden signed Rep. Annie Kuster’s (NH-02) bipartisan legislation, the Safe Connections Act, into law to protect survivors of domestic abuse and violence. This new law will help survivors of domestic violence and other crimes cut ties with their abusers by separating from shared wireless service plans, which can be exploited to monitor, stalk, or control victims. Companion legislation was introduced in the Senate by Senators Brian Schatz (D-HI) and Deb Fischer (R-NE).
“This legislation will make a real difference in the lives of survivors trying to separate from their abusers here in New Hampshire and across the country,” said Amanda Grady Sexton, Director of Public Affairs for NHCADSV. “Far too often, abusers will use shared phone lines to manipulate and intimidate their victims – thanks to Congresswoman Kuster, victims now have a clear path to separating their phone service.”
