The Arkansas House of Representatives has voted to send H.B. 1228, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, to Governor Hutchinson to be signed into law.
This good bill affirms and upholds religious liberty in Arkansas. It is modeled after legislation in at least 20 other states and the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act signed by President Clinton in 1993.
All told, Arkansas is one of only 11 states with no law or court ruling on the books spelling out protections for religious liberty.
Please call Governor Asa Hutchinson’s office right away, and ask him to sign H.B. 1228 into law. This is a good bill that prevents the state from infringing religious liberty in Arkansas.
