Update on CB63, The Liberty Bill

Update on CB63, The Liberty Bill

Thank you to everyone who reached out to their County Council member asking them to support CB63, The Liberty Bill.  This was a bill similar to CB9 that was supported by our congregation a few years ago. The bill prohibits county employees and contractors from asking anyone about immigration status or denying services on that basis and also prohibits providing information to ICE.

I am happy to report that it passed the Howard County Council with a 4-1 vote. You may read the article in the Baltimore Sun here. This is a veto-proof majority! Please send a note of gratitude to your council member and thank them for supporting this bill and making Howard County a safer and more welcoming community!

Thank you,

UUCC Member Tammy Spengler
