Texas Governor Greg Abbott has signed the so-called “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law.
The legislation prevents governments from taking actions against people or businesses based on support of religious groups.
The move comes after Chick-fil-A was banned from opening a restaurant in the San Antonio International Airport. Supporters of the law said it gives religious protections.
Jonathan Saenz, President of Texas Values Action said “We thank Governor Abbott for signing this common sense, bipartisan supported religious freedom legislation into law and for the leadership of Senator Bryan Hughes and Rep. Matt Krause. The Save Chick-fil-A law makes it clear in Texas; you don’t mess with Chick-Fil-A, and you don’t mess with religious freedom.”
