Urge a NO vote on SB 323 Attack on Religious Freedom and Non-Profits
SB 323 seeks to revoke the tax-exempt status of all non-profit youth sports and civic organizations,including private schools, if the organizations do not hire, allow as leaders, persons whose sexual conduct is against the tenets of such institutions.
This bill poses an unprecedented intrusion by the government by prohibiting institutions from adhering to their most deeply held beliefs about what is approp
riate conduct when making management decisions and in fulfilling the institution’s purpose.
SB 323 violates constitutional rights to free speech, freedom of association, and freedom of religion.
This bill will be voted on by the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday 4/29/2013.
We urge you to contact the committee members listed below and ask them to vote “NO” on SB 323!
