Local paper: "Debate intensifies over VA gay adoption rules"


A reminder that, even though there has been overwhelming public opposition to these proposed new regs and good signals from Governor McDonnell, we still need to keep the positive pressure up in Virginia:

Lobbying efforts are intensifying over a proposed regulatory change that would prohibit Virginia adoption agencies from discriminating based on sexual orientation.

... The Human Rights Campaign today ran a full page ad in The Times-Dispatch calling on McDonnell to support the regulatory changes that Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's administration set in motion before he left office.

... The Family Equality Council is also calling on McDonnell to support the change. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)
