SJM 119 MAKES IDAHO A NATIONAL LEADER IN THE
FIGHT FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
Please note that on March 8, 2006, the Idaho State Senate passed Senate Joint Memorial
(SJM) #119, by a vote of 25-5 and 5 members not voting.
That on March 24, 2006, the Idaho State House of Representatives adopted SJM
119 by a vote of 53-11 and 6 members not voting.
SJM 119 requests Congress to pass S520 in the Senate and
HR1070 in the House, The Constitution Restoration Act of 2005, which will do
the Ten Commandments in public buildings and places in our states;
their faith in public;
God in the Pledge of Allegiance;
“In God We Trust” as our national motto; and
Article 3, 2.2 of the U.S. Constitution to except these areas from the
jurisdiction of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Mr. Bryan Fischer, Executive Director of Idaho Values
Alliance is deserving of the thanks of all of us for his leadership in getting
the Idaho legislature to pass SJM 119. Sen. Gerry Sweet and Rep. Bill Sali took the
leadership role in the Idaho State Senate and the Idaho House of
Representatives respectively to get SJM 119 passed.
Idaho is the second state legislature to adopt a Resolution
asking Congress to pass The Constitution Restoration Act of 2005. The Louisiana State Legislature passed a
similar Resolution in November, 2005.
