Talking Points Memo is reporting a possible breakthrough on the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act which has been stalled in the Tea-Publican House. House Votes To Move On To VAWA:

The House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to approve a rule that would
give the House GOP's Violence Against Women Act a vote, and if it
fails, the Senate-passed version would get a vote.

The expectation, aides on both sides signaled to TPM, was that the House version would fail and the Senate version would pass. A final vote is expected Thursday after debate.
