The so-called bathroom bill, Senate bill 1306 could endanger the religious freedom rights of christian not-for-profits.

The Pennsylvania Family Institute says the measure infringes on hiring policies and privacy protections. That group fears lawmakers will try to ram through the legislation, since there are only a dozen joint-sessions of the legislature scheduled this fall.

The House returns to session September 19th.  The Senate on September 26th.           

The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference has joined the chorus of conservatives calling for a religious exemption to the bill to protect the rights of not-for-profits.
