35th District State Representative Andrew Fink has introduced his first legislation of the new term.
Fink introduced house bill 4075 – the Michigan Religious Freedom Restoration Act– earlier this week.
He said, In addition to re-affirming the free exercise of religion as an unalienable right, the act would explicitly prohibit the State of Michigan from substantially burdening a person’s exercise of religion..
Fink said as certain religious communities, especially Christian churches, have begun to face more hostility for their views on trending social issues, Michigan must be “as committed as any state” to protecting religious liberty.
The bill was introduced in the Michigan House of Representatives, Tuesday.
It’s been referred to the Committee on Government Operations.
