A controversial bill allowing public and private employees to refuse to serve same-sex couples based on religious beliefs about marriage is likely to resurface in some form in the next legislative session.
The legislation – called the religious freedom bill by supporters – passed easily in the House in the last session but was halted by Senate leaders after lawmakers were flooded with angry phone calls and e-mails.
Some supporters of the bill are eager to revisit the issue now that a federal court has struck down the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and same-sex couples have begun to wed across the state. It’s unclear how similar this session’s bill would be to the original one and who would introduce it.
