Subject:CAPTA 1974 and 1978

I am doing a piece on the victim's rights movement in the 1970's. I

would like to include a description of CAPTA as it was originally

passed in 1974, and amended in 1978. The only materials I can find at

my university (no law school here) are the on-line services that link

to the current, much amended CAPTA. Can anyone provide me with

something that tells me the original provisions? I would especially

appreciate knowing the major changes over time. It's my impression

that the amended versions lean to more and more involvement of the

criminal justice system in abuse cases, but I'd like confirmation one

way or another.



Thank you!
