This page has been formed due to the numerous e-mails I've been receiving from John Mays.  Some of them are job postings, and they, of course go onto the Job Opportunities page, but some have been either training announcements or other miscellaneous items, so I've decided to put up yet another page to put those postings here.

Religious Liberty Protection Act of 1999

The House of Representatives is expected to vote in the next two weeks on H.R. 1691, the "Religious Liberty Protection Act". While the free exercise of religion is a fundamental right guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, H.R. 1691 goes far beyond what is necessary to protect religious freedom. The bill raises serious concerns for local governments. This includes:

Overriding animal cruelty laws for religious sects that practice animal sacrifice.

H.R. 1691 states that local and state laws would not apply to churches and religious activities of individuals if the laws create "substantial burden". To overcome the burden, the local government would have to prove that the laws are in furtherance of a "compelling governmental interest" and the zoning requirements are the "least restrictive means" of furthering that interest.

Such language invites litigation and seriously limits the ability of a country to require churches and individuals to comply with neutral laws and rules that apply to everyone else. A local government could "alleviate the burdens on religious exercise" only by exempting the church of individual from the local ordinance or regulation.

H.R. 1691 further preempts local authority by allowing religious organization and individuals to challenge unfavorable decisions directly in federal courts, rather than using local appeals processes or state courts.

NACA’s Position:

While NACA strongly supports the First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, we believe that H.R. 1691 is contrary to principals of federalism and preempts county authority. Congress should not confer special privileges on religious facilities in land use disputes or exempt individuals from requirements that protect the health and safety of children. Local elected officials should be allowed to fulfill their responsibilities to act in the best interest of the entire community without the threat of frivolous lawsuits.

Action Needed:

NACA URGES COUNTIES TO CONTACT THEIR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS IMMEDIATELY TO URGE THAT H.R. 1691 NOT BE BROUGHT TO THE HOUSE FLOOR. IF THE BILL IS BROUGHT UP FOR FLOOR ACTION, WE URGE THAT HOUSE MEMBERS VOTE AGAINST H.R. 1691.
