Please keep the center in prayer as the state legislature considers two bills that appear aimed at harming us and the other PRCs in VT.
Rep.Mr. George Till has introduced H.634 "An act relating to pregnancy center fraud". The wording of this egregious piece of legislation is vague, which would leave us open to interpretations of wording such as "ought to know it is untrue", "clearly designed to mislead the public" and "by the exercise of reasonable care". Please read the bill as introduced and contact your representatives to voice your opposition. https://legislature.vermont.gov/bill/status/2022/H.634
Also, just as we are getting ready to welcome the Mobil Clinic in March, Reps. Ann Pugh and Barbara Rachaelson have introduced an "act relating to prohibiting mobile billboards".
Here's some of the wording of the bill as introduced:
"A “sign” is any structure, display, device, or representation, either
temporary or permanent, portable, mobile, vehicle-mounted, or ground mounted, that is designed or used to advertise or call attention to any thing, person, business, activity, or place and is visible from any highway or other right-of-way."
We need and appreciate your strong opposition to these bills!
