A bill authorizing the US State Department’s budget and initiatives for the coming year is scheduled for a vote tomorrow in the US House of Representatives. There are a number of advocacy groups that are concerned about some of the programs included.  There are two sections that are particularly troubling, #333 (Descrimination Related to Sexual Orientation) and #334 (Office for Global Women’s Issues). 

This report takes a look at the controversy surrounding section #334 of House Bill 2410 with Tom McClusky of the Family Research Council, Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America and Jessica Sage of American’s United for Life.  

If you’d like to read the complete bill yourself, click here.
