"D.  The Governor shall establish a Commission on Sexual Violence.  The Commmission shall review and implement recommendations from a 2005 Virginia Department of Health report, "Response to and Prevention of Sexual Assault in the Commonwealth of Virginia (Senate Document 18)" and promote prevention and intervention efforts throughout the Commonwealth that address sexual violence."

(This amendment provides funding to support the creation of a Governor's Commission on Sexual Violence, including staffing, travel, meeting costs, resources, and publications as needed. A 2005 study by the Virginia Department of Health (Senate Document 18) contains a number of recommendations to improve the statewide response to sexual violence, including better statewide collaboration among law enforcement and criminal justice, medical care, victim services, prevention and research.)
