Alabama Policy Institute and Eagle Forum Propose Resolution to State School Board Opposing Critical Race Theory – Yellowhammer News
In late April, US Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) announced that he would co-sponsor the Improving Military Justice and Increasing Prevention Act. The bill would reform the way crimes of sexual assault are prosecuted in the military. At a press conference at Dannelly Field in Montgomery on June 3, Tuberville said the bill would make positive changes to the way the military prosecutes sexual assault cases, but also said the project of law maintained the authority of commanders to maintain law and order.
As he’s well known for doing, Tuberville recounted the changes in football, saying it fits the needs of a head coach to discipline players. References to football aside, the bill is a historic opportunity for Congress to assert its authority over cases of endemic sexual assault in the military. While this is a popular move, it faces well-founded opposition from key Senate leaders that could slow its momentum in the red zone (OK, that was the last one).
