BILL SUMMARIES

INTRODUCED

HB 1799 -- Religious Freedom

Sponsor:  Kelley (47)

This bill prohibits a governmental authority from restricting a
person's free exercise of religion unless the restriction is
generally applicable, does not discriminate based on religion,
is necessary to further a compelling governmental interest, and
is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling
governmental interest.  The bill also specifies that its
provisions apply to all state and local laws, resolutions, and
ordinances regardless of whether the laws, resolutions, and
ordinances were adopted before or after the bill's effective
date.
