Democrat Members of the Texas House Kill Religious Liberty Bill

AUSTIN, TX – Last night, House Democrats killed House Bill 3172, also called the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill, which focused on promoting religious liberty in Texas. The bill would have prevented the government from taking action against someone for their “membership in and support to religious organizations.” Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey stated:

“Texas Democrats have stifled religious liberty and the freedom to support any organization or belief they do not agree with. HB 3172 sought to defend Texans from government persecution based on their beliefs – which everyone should be in favor of. Instead, Texas Democrats continue to show their true colors by denying Texans their Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.”
