Religious Liberty Measure Hearing Set for Tuesday in Jeff
April 11, 2016

Missouri’s so-called religious freedom bill is scheduled for a House committee hearing early Tuesday evening.
Notices started going out Monday afternoon.
The measure would prevent anyone from being punished for refusing to do business with a same sex couple.
Business interests in Kansas City and in St. Louis are worried such a measure could cost the state business and some high profile sports events.
The Kansas City Sports Commission says even serious consideration of such a move could jeopardize the Commission’s ability to competitively bid for future NCAA events and championships.
Supporters say the measure is not a sword to discriminate with but a shield to protect Missourians’s their personal or religious convictions.
The measure has already passed the state Senate. If approved by the House the proposed constitutional amendment would gin on the state-wide ballot later this year.
