Fathers Count Act of 1999


fathers count
Fathers Count: On the 19th of Nov 1999, HR 3073 was referred to the Senate Committee on Finance after being passed by the House of Representatives by a vote of 328 to 93.

The bill, desperately opposed by misandrist groups such as the National Organization for Women (NOW), nevertheless drew strong bipartisan support for its purported goal of promoting responsible fatherhood.

A conservative critique of the bill by Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation pointed out that most of the efforts funded would go towards funneling financial and other support to children already separated from their fathers, rather than reducing the incidence of family separation.





Once the bill passes the Senate, it will mark the most important win for fathers in thirty years. The President has already indicated he will sign the bill into law.
