A new legislative session is underway with unprecedented support from faith communities for the PA Legislature to pass HB/SB 300 during the 2015-16 session. Although the bill has not yet been officially introduced, with 60 bi-partisan co-sponsors and the support of over 600 faith leaders from 20 denominations in the state, this may be the tipping point we need to pass this important legislation! Governor Wolf has been clear, “Send me a bill. I want to sign it.”
