Arkansas legislature refers troubling version of RFRA for public referendum in 2022 as amendment to state constitution

In 2022, Arkansans are poised to vote on a troubling referendum related to religious liberty. SJR 14 would, if adopted, amend the state constitution to add a version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). The measure passed overwhelmingly in both houses and does not require action by the governor to proceed to public referendum, according to reporting from  the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
