As expected....more delay, more delay

State gives Memphis facility another week to seek license

NASHVILLE, Tenn. State officials have given two unlicensed personal care facilities in Memphis another week to apply for a license or change their operations before facing an order to shut down.

The state Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities extended a deadline from today to next Friday.
The facilities are run by a Christian group -- Love In Action International -- that counsels gays to give up homosexuality.
The state contends the group needs a license to provide the services they are now doing.
Love In Action's work, particularly with teenagers, has drawn protests from gay rights advocates.


That comes from the AP. State officials denied having any information about the LIA going to the lisensure dept with state rep's, etc...We also recieved reports that LIA would be closed on Friday from other sources. More info as it comes.
