In the aftermath of FLDS fiasco, the Senate held a committee meeting yesterday on "crimes associated with polygamy." According to the NY Times, majority leader Harry Reid "introduced legislation Wednesday calling for a national task force on polygamy and a $4 million fund to bolster law enforcement and social service efforts to fight it and associated crimes." (As you'll recall, FLDS prophet Warren Jeffs was arrested in Reid's home state of Nevada.) Today, FLDS members will speak at a Senate hearing, though the Times quotes a social worker with relatives in the church as saying that the FLDS would never abandon its multiply-marrying ways. "It's essential to their faith," she said. "You can't enter the celestial kingdom unless you've been entered into a polygamous or plural marriage." [NY Times]
