HR 4970 vs HR 4271

With the the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) being such a hot topic there are bound to be confusion and conflicts.

Apparently there are two versions of the re-authorization of it floating around. The first, sponsored by Rep. Gwen Moore is H.R. 4271 and the second is sponsored by Rep. Stacy Adams, H.R. 4970.

I've been looking at these for the last 20 minutes or so and honestly they look so much alike. However if NOW is actively trying to gain support for 4271 over 4970 then there must be some sort of difference.
