HR 2679 passes Judiciary Committee
The reactions of the ACLU and the AUSCS are here and here.
I would prefer a cap on attorney fee awards for both establishment clause cases and free exercise clause cases, but I think that HR 2679 is much better than nothing. Corrections to the law could always be made later.
