HB 837 would provide that the United States Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 would apply to all of Georgia.

The bill would prohibit the state government from substantially burdening a person’s exercise of religion even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability, unless the government can demonstrate that application of the burden to the person: (1) furthers a compelling governmental interest; and (2) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.
