Speaker: Bob Crittenden

Series: Faith Radio

Category: Faith Radio, The Meeting House

Keywords: adoption, freedom, godfrey, alcap

Joe Godfrey, Executive Director of the Alabama Citizens' Action Program, or ALCAP, gave an update on HB24, the Child Placing Agency Inclusion Act, which allows child placing agencies to set their parameters by which they allow children to be adopted; one example would be the protection of faith-based agencies who do not wish to place children in home situations they find morally objectionable.  

The bill has passed the Alabama House and Senate, but the governor has indicated that she is considering adding an executive amendment, which would send the bill back to the Legislature, with a limited number of days remaining.
