The “Religious Liberty” bill is looming over the upcoming legislative session to the pleasure or the dismay of many. Political watchers might recall the legislation’s various forms over past sessions ranging from the Pastor Protection Act to the First Amendment Defense Act. With legislators and policy wonks searching for the right answer somewhere in between the aforementioned versions of “Religious Liberty,” two legislators known to be vocal on the matter will debate the cause in a public forum.
Senators Vincent Fort and Greg Kirk will host four debates across the state according to ProjectQ.
