HB 837, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), authored by Representative Ed Setzler, is the House's legislation that would require courts to use a two-part test when handling religious liberty cases. The first part is determining whether the state has a compelling interest in interfering with the religious expression in question. The second part is determining whether the court is limiting that religious expression in the least restrictive means possible. This legislation is imperative to ensure that Georgians' religious liberty is treated as a first-tier right, along with freedom of press and speech.
Georgia Right to Life supports HB 837.
