A bill filed at the capitol on Monday would help protect religious freedom and rights of conscience in Arkansas.

H.B. 1615 by Rep. Robin Lundstrum (R — Elm Springs) and Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R — Branch) makes important clarifications to the state Religious Freedom Restoration Act that lawmakers passed in 2015.

It also helps safeguard the ability of religious people and religious organizations to operate according to their deeply held convictions.

The Free Exercise of Religion and the right to live according to our deeply-held convictions are fundamental rights that our laws are supposed to safeguard.

H.B. 1615 is a good bill that helps protect those liberties from encroachment by the government.
