 Ballinger of Ozark joins NACL

Former State Sen. Bob Ballinger, R-Ozark, has become the Director of Law and Policy for the National Association of Christian Lawmakers, the group announced Monday.

The National Association of Christian Lawmakers is a nonprofit association founded by former state Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Conway, to support city, county, state and federal lawmakers across the nation, the association said in a news release.

Ballinger, an attorney, said working as the association's director of law and policy will be his primary job. He currently serves as the Arkansas state chair for the association and is a founding member of the association.

"I am humbled and blessed to have the opportunity to stay engaged in the battle alongside NACL," he said in the news release. "More than ever, our families and values are under attack. What has made our country great is actually under attack. It is a privilege to work with NACL to provide support to Christian lawmakers across the nation who are willing to stand in the gap."
