Your immediate assistance is needed:
As you may know, the Georgia Senate passed the Georgia Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) (SB 129) last week in a very convincing 37-15 vote. The bill must now get a hearing in the Judiciary Committee and then be passed on to the House floor for a vote.
Here is the matter of urgency:
David Ralston, Speaker of the House, needs to hear from Georgia Baptists now. I am asking for your help with two things:
1. Please ask your congregation to contact Speaker Ralston and ask him to allow this legislation to have a hearing and pass the Georgia House without amendment. His contact information is below.
Capitol: (404) 656-5020
District: (706) 632-2221
2. Please ask your congregation to contact their State Representative and encourage the support of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Also, ask the Representative to communicate to Speaker Ralston support and ask him to allow the bill to be voted on in the House with no amendments. Respectful, courteous communication with your Representative will be appreciated. They love to hear from their constituents.
