On Tuesday the Arkansas Legislature passed S.J.R. 14.
This good measure by Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway) and Rep. Jimmy Gazaway (R – Paragould) refers the Arkansas Religious Freedom Amendment to voters for the November 2022 election.
If enacted, S.J.R. 14 would write good protections for religious liberty into the Arkansas Constitution.
It prevents the government from burdening a person’s free exercise of religion. The measure is similar to Arkansas’ state Religious Freedom Restoration Act. However, it writes protections for religious freedom into the Arkansas Constitution.
