Home of the enslaved.

(no subject)


The current status on this bill is "Referred to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform." With any luck it will stagnate and die there. You can help by writing your Congresspeople.

The only Democrat cosponsor of this bill is Mike McIntyre (D-NC). While he supports this bill, he did not vote in favor of a House resolution recognizing the beginning of Ramadan in October 2007.
