Virginia--Your Calls Helped Religious Freedom Legislation Move Forward

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Good news! Your calls played an important part in the passage of the
Religious Freedom Act (HB 3082) out of subcommittee today. In a vote
of 7-3, the subcommittee on Civil Courts sent the Religious Freedom
Act onto the full committee for a vote in the near future.

The bill was passed in a bi-partisan manner which is key for its
ultimate passage in the whole Assembly.

Home School Legal Defense Association Attorney Scott Woodruff provided
key evidence in his testimony for the need of a religious protection
act. In addition, pivotal testimony was provided by State Solicitor
General Bill Thro who answered many questions from the delegates. We
are very thankful to Delegate Scott Lingamfelter who is spearheading
this important piece of legislation.

This is the best start the Religious Freedom Act has received in the
three years we have tried to get it passed. We believe this will be
the year it will go all the way. We will notify you when the bill goes
before the full committee.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
Senior Counsel
