ACLU Lost This One.

"Dear Josiah,
Thank you for contacting me regarding the Boy Scouts of America. It is always good to hear from a fellow West Virginian.

As you may know, during the Senate consideration of the Department of Defense Authorization bill earlier this summer Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn) introduced an amendment related to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and federal agencies. Specifically the amendment provided that no federal law, including any rule, regulation, directive, and instruction be construed to limit any government agency from providing support to the BSA."

This is a portion of a letter I recieved today from Senator John D. Rockefeller (D-WVA). I had wrote him along with many others regarding ACLU attacks on the BSA. The bill he refers to passed in the senate by a 98-0 vote. I would like to thank Sen. Rockefeller for his efforts and support. God bless you
