You’re invited to join Senator Lee at 9 a.m. Central time on Sept.
15, 2015, for a live webinar. The senator and his staff members, Leslie
Ford and Conn Carroll, will discuss this legislation — titled the First Amendment Defense Act — and take questions from you about tax-exempt status and its future.
Senator Lee previously served as law clerk with future Supreme Court
Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third
Circuit, and he worked for several years as an attorney, specializing in
Supreme Court litigation. Now Lee serves on the Judiciary Committee and
is chairman of the Senate Steering Committee.
