Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Applauds Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby Decision Protecting Religious Freedom

AUSTIN—Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott issued the following statement on today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.:

“Today’s ruling is a major victory for religious freedom and another blow to the heavy-handed way the Obama Administration has tried to force the misguided Obamacare law on Americans. Once again, the Supreme Court has struck down an overreaching regulation by the Obama Administration—and once again Obamacare has proven to be an illegal intrusion into the lives of so many Americans across the country.”
