PHILADELPHIA -

Gov. Tom Corbett was in Philadelphia Thursday where he met with members of the Women Organized Against Rape crisis center to discuss the state's 2013 budget.

Corbett, who gave his budget address earlier this month, discussed his pension reform plan and how he hopes it will result in more money for these types of centers.

A bill is headed to President Obama's desk that renews protection from domestic violence for women and some men.

The House on Thursday passed an extension of the "Violence Against Women Act." The bill lapsed in 2011 when lawmakers were unable to agree on the types of protections the act should offer.
