Support Our Scouts Act

"...it certainly creates fresh new ground for lawsuits, if nothing else. "

 

If that's the case, perhaps the bill should be renamed the Save our Scouts and Employ Our Constitutional Lawyers Act. :)

NJ, I see your point, but I think the legislation was written in a cagy way to allow DOD to say that their directive was simply reminding units of a constitutional limitation, and thus did not make a change. I think what this bill is trying to head off (assuming anybody really intends to try to pass it) is efforts to exclude Scouting from access to government facilities (i.e., Jamboree) on the grounds that it is discriminatory. But I don't disagree that somebody might run with the interpretation you suggest. I predict, however, that the bill will sink into procedural obscurity and fade from memory. It's already served its primary purpose.
