Becket Fund letter cautions Baltimore City Council to comply with RLUIPA in zoning religious institutions

Becket Fund: “Today, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty sent a letter to Councilwoman Rochelle Spector of the Baltimore City Council offering recommendations to amend Baltimore’s proposed new zoning code. Several provisions of the code violate state and federal law as well as the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (‘RLUIPA’) and have the potential to discriminate against houses of worship and religious schools.”
