Religious Freedom Bill DOA For 2014

The House has agreed unanimously to return HB 427, Rep. Lynn Luker’s religious freedom expansion bill, to the House State Affairs Committee. Luker told the AP this morning that the bill likely won’t come up again this session. “HB 427 has been on the amending order for some time,” Luker told the House this morning. “The reason for that was it was sent here to respond to concerns that were addressed in the public testimony in the State Affairs Committee. Due to continuing comments, many constructive, it’s appropriate to return it to the committee to see if some of those concerns can be balanced.” House Speaker Scott Bedke, R-Oakley, said, “It's not coming back this session”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
