Moratorium on federal intrusion—a footnote

From the December 1994 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In the October Journal (see "Moratorium suspends federal intrusion on states' religious accommodations") we told of action in July by the United States House of Representatives (incorrectly described as the full Congress) temporarily to halt efforts by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to pressure states to remove laws accommodating spiritual healing for children. President Clinton signed appropriations bills containing the moratorium provision on September 30.
