FRC Wish List on Congress’s Plate This Week

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins will be “working triple overtime next week” on “[n]o less than seven votes that are important to families,” he wrote in his “Washington Update.” The “big vote” for Perkins is the anti-gay marriage amendment vote in the House; although the measure has already failed in the Senate, he told his supporters that “your phone calls are urgently needed.” Then there are the upcoming votes on bills relating to stem-cell research.

“Add to this mix a possible vote in the House on the Pledge Protection Act and vote in the Senate on the Child Custody Protection Act and you can understand we won’t be getting a lot of sleep next week,” he wrote. “Thoroughly confused? That is why we have made a checklist for you to take to church this weekend and share with your friends on the bills pending next week.”
