On Thursday, March 17, at 9 a.m. the Arkansas Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for Act 1, the Arkansas Adoption and Foster Care Act.

“We’ve said all along that this issue is about child welfare,” said Family Council Action Committee President Jerry Cox. “We are confident that the Arkansas Supreme Court will rule in favor of keeping Act 1 part of Arkansas law.”

In 2008, Arkansas voters passed Act 1—a law that prevents foster or adoptive children from being place in cohabiting homes—by 57-percent of the vote.

Family Council Action Committee is a conservative 501(c)(4) organization based in Little Rock, Arkansas.
