The Sanctuary City for the Unborn petition submitted to the City of Amarillo recently has been validated by the office of the City Secretary. 

That validation included confirmation of the signatures accompanied by Affidavits of Circulator.

The petition will be presented to the the city council at the next regular meeting scheduled for May 28, at which time the council may hold a public hearing to consider the proposed ordinance, or set a future date to do so.

Either way, the city council is required to take action on the petition no later than 30 days after May 28.

You can view a short video explaining the petition process on the City’s YouTube channel.
