Fair Housing Board Update

Without the approval of this web site...

Virginia House Bill 1480, which funds and regulates the "Fair Housing Board," was enacted into law:

Although the Fair Housing Board had been funded before this year, and the amendments to the reenactment of existing law merely clarified administrative details, a Fair Housing Board is a government expense this web site recommends cutting. Note, particularly, that this board is required to represent the mortgage lending industry and the property insurance industry (and this web site recommends simplifying our lives by shunning both), but I see nothing in there about representing any community of people who want to live simply on the land, whether in accord with, or without reference to, the substantial amount of Bible teaching on this subject. (Such communities include, but are not limited to, most Amish and Mennonite congregations and some other minority churches.)
