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!
