Lt. Governor Patrick: Statement on the Filing of Senate Bill 24 – Sermon Safeguard


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued the following statement today on the pre-filing of Senate Bill 24 – Sermon Safeguard, by Senator Joan Huffman (R- Houston).

“One of my top priorities is to protect our First Amendment right to religious liberty, something we particularly treasure during the holiday season. SB24 will give pastors critical protection from forced testimony and shield sermons from government subpoena power.”
