A Texas legislator has put forward a bill to let citizens who renew their drivers licenses crowd fund $1 to pay for the testing of the large backlog of rape kits.
The crowdfunding will supplement the Texas budget that pays between $1,000-1,500 for each test.
There are still 3,604 rape kits that have not been tested for DNA evidence, denying women their right to have their accused rapist brought to trial.
Similar efforts are being introduced in New Mexico and California. Other places, like Detroit, have teamed with non-profits like Enough Said to get these kits analyzed.
