Gov. Bryant signs anti-LGBTQ+ legislation

-

On Monday, the Legislature sent the Religious Freedom Bill, House Bill 1523, to Gov. Bryant to be reviewed. That same day, protesters gathered outside the Governor’s Mansion to protest against what some are calling the anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination bill.

Despite the push back, Bryant signed the bill into law on Tuesday.

While HB 1523 was in the legislature, Bryant said he believes it would be applied fairly and will ensure the religious freedoms of those it protects.

I don’t think it’s discriminatory,” Bryant said. “I think it gives some people as I appreciate it — the right to be able to say that’s against my religious beliefs, and I don’t need to carry out that particular task.”
