Scott Hails Administration Decision to Protect Religious Liberty in South Carolina
CHARLESTON, SC—Today, United States Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement on the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) decision to protect the religious liberty of South Carolina’s faith-based foster care providers:
“It is a great day for South Carolina, religious liberty, and all foster-care kids across the Palmetto State. We should ensure that federal regulations do not discriminate against faith-based organizations like South Carolina’s Miracle Hill, that only seek to give thousands of children across our state a family and a place to call home,” said Senator Scott. “South Carolina’s voice was heard loud and clear—we will do everything we can to defend those who want to help our most vulnerable. I thank ACF and HHS for ensuring that we provide any and every opportunity for the next generation to flourish and succeed.”
