HB4012 Pushed Back Till Next Week By House Judiciary
Many came and spoke at yesterday’s 9:30 a.m public hearing in support of the bill. But several spoke against it as well including the manager of the Embassy Suites in Charleston making a false claim that the bill allows discrimination. One of the new broadband providers in West Virginia also sent a representative to speak against the bill.
The state chamber of commerce has also yet to support the bill. That has been the strategy of the bill’s opponents in other states. Misinformation about what the bill does is the only way they can hope to defeat this much-needed protection for people of faith. We will need you to call many of these businesses and some key legislators shortly. We will send a follow-up with more specifics. Be prepared to act.

Yes on HB4012!
President Bill Clinton and Congress signed a similar law in 1993 protecting us against unjust Federal punishment for exercising our religious beliefs. Twenty-one states have their own law. Now it’s time our West Virginia legislators protect us against unjust state punishment.
