Walz signs bill clarifying constitutional protections for religious entities under Human Rights Act

Gov. Tim Walz signed a bill Wednesday clarifying that religious protections exist in the state and U.S. Constitutions.

State Rep. Harry Niska, R-Ramsey, posted on social media, "Thank you to all who spoke up in support of religious freedom and applied pressure to get this fixed!"

But DFL House Speaker Melissa Hortman of Brooklyn Park said there was no fix, only a clarification that religious freedoms are protected under the state and U.S. Constitutions.
