HB 28 would prohibit the state from requiring a person to solemnize a marriage to which the person holds a sincere religious objection or which is contrary to the person’s faith tradition.

The bill would also amend the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act to clarify that solemnizing a marriage to which a person holds a sincere religious objection or which is contrary to that person’s faith would be considered a substantial burden for which there is no compelling government interest and that person would additionally be immune from any civil or criminal liability for declining to solemnize such a marriage.

STATUS

Similar to HB 14, HB 17,  and HB 31.
