AN ACT to establish a temporary state commission, within the office  for
  the  prevention  of  domestic  violence,  to  study  intimate  partner

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings  and intent. The legislature hereby
finds that intimate partner violence against women  is  a  major  public
health  concern  that needs to be addressed with all practical and prag-

partner  each year, and 25% will experience intimate partner violence at
some time during their lifetimes.  Moreover,  25%  of  adolescents  have
experienced  physical  or sexual dating violence. In another report, the
U.S. Department of Justice found out that females are approximately  ten
times more likely to be killed by an intimate partner than are males.
  Similarly,  injuries  that result from such violence are significantly
more common among females for both adolescents  and  adult  populations,
and  approximately  10%  of intentional injuries to adolescent girls are
reported to be the result of violent male dating. External factors  such
as  race,  age,  illiteracy  and  ethnicity are closely related with the
climbing rates of intimate partner violence. Furthermore,  health  risks
and  demographics  have  been  found  to  be associated with both dating
violence variables and health risk outcomes.
  Research suggests that the incidence of physical dating  violence  was
associated  with  substance  use (heavy smoking, binge drinking, driving
