Legislator Joseph Meyers’ resolution requesting Congress to review and amend the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000, also known as RLUIPA, will go up for a vote before the full Rockland County Legislature on Tuesday night.
The measure has passed through two committees. The resolution was Meyers’ first as a county legislator, though during election season last year he was more forceful in his campaign against RLUIPA, calling repeatedly for the law to be repealed. Meyers is a Democrat from Airmont.
People on both sides of the RLUIPA debate are expected to speak during the Legislature’s public participation session at the start of the meeting.
The meeting begins at 8 p.m. in the Legislature chambers at 11 New Hempstead Road in New City.
