On the issues: Rep. Ken Calvert and Will Rollins on Jan. 6, LGBTQ rights and polarization

In our last update on our report on the influence of religious right lobbyists on Congress, we identified nine issues of concern to our readers: immigration, the HHS contraception mandate, LGBT anti-discrimination protections, the Endangered Species Act, the First Amendment, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), the Second Amendment, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), the Violence Against Women Act and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act. Today we continue the conversation with Rep. Ken Calvert and state Rep. Will Rollins of Ohio, who have also been identified on the list of the top 100 most influential congressmen by Capitol Weekly.

Rep. Calvert is a member of the House of Representatives Ways & Means Committee. Rep. Rollins is a member of the Judiciary Committee, and therefore has jurisdiction over many issues affecting the lives of LGBTQ people, including hate crimes and domestic abuse.

We encourage readers to call into our Washington, D.C., office at 202-225-2881. The information on our callers is sent to us by the members with the call, and we are unable to edit them before publishing.
