A hearing was held on coordinating state and federal responses to crimes associated with polygamy, such as welfare fraud. The first witness was Nevada Senator Harry Reid, who was introducing a bill that day to establish a polygamy task force, authorize grants for local law enforcement, and authorize grants for victim assistance. Subsequent witness panels talked about several issues including legal proceedings in Texas involving several Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints (FLDS) families, the practice of polygamy in several FLDS communities, child welfare policy, and the boundaries of freedom of religion. close
