Respect the right of DC residents to legislate on local issues
On Tuesday, December 1, the Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Equality Amendment Act of 2009 passed in the DC City Council with a vote of 11-2. After the bill is signed into law by Mayor Fenty, it will embark upon a 30 day congressional review period. Alliance for Justice recently added its name to a letter to Congress circulated by DC Vote that calls on the House to respect the right of DC residents to legislate on local issues such as marriage equality.
