Hobby Lobby Bill Has Senators on Both Sides Taking a Stand

The Senate this afternoon takes a high-profile procedural vote on a bill that would overturn the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision. Democrats are seeking to modify a religious non-discrimination law to eliminate the possibility of a “closely held” corporation denying contraceptive services coverage due to the religious beliefs of company owners. Republicans have readied an alternative measure that confirms employee access to contraceptives.

While the Democratic measure has little chance of gaining the attention of the House, CQ Roll Call’s Melissa Attias reported this morning that the effort likely seeks to urge the Obama administration to issue new regulations for closely held companies objecting to the mandate or a congressional push to have the federal government directly fund the delivery of contraceptive services.

Meanwhile, lower courts are still processing separate challenges to contraceptive services coverage requirements for nonprofit religious organizations and colleges.

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    naturally like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
