Richard Land

WASHINGTON (BP)--Southern Baptist church-state specialist Richard Land is returning to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, this time as a senatorial appointee.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee has named Land to the nine-member panel, the USCIRF announced July 26. Previously, President Bush had appointed Land to the commission for two terms totaling three years. Land completed his second term in September 2004. Lands new appointment to the panel is effective immediately.

After being off the USCIRF for a year, the president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission returns to the panel to replace Michael Young, who had served on the commission since it began in 1999.

The USCIRF, which is a nonpartisan panel appointed by the president and members of Congress, researches the status of religious liberty in other countries and provides reports and recommendations to the White House and legislators.
