What does Public Policy mean?

Public Policy generally refers to laws, such as statutes, municipal codes, guidelines, and rules, created by governmental entities or through the initiative process. These laws can have a profound negative or positive impact on religious liberty and other individual rights.

• school boards
• city councils
