House Bill (HB) 5944, also known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, was voted out of the house on Thursday, December 4, along party lines. On Tuesday, December 9, it will be read-in, then we will find out if there will be a hearing/vote in the Senate. This bill will likely impact our profession and counseling programs at the university level. If it goes into effect, it will also challenge our ethical obligation to our clients/patients. Please read the bill and you can decide for yourself. Then contact your state representatives and proffer your position.
