General Paxton Commends Leadership of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sent letters to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and House Speaker Joe Straus outlining recommendations for interim charges to enhance protections for religious liberty and further protect the life and dignity of unborn babies. 

“Religious liberty is the First Freedom established in the Bill of Rights and is the foundation of freedom of conscience for all Texans and Americans” said Attorney General Ken Paxton. “I commend the leadership of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick in sending interim charges leading up to the 2017 Legislative Session to consider clarifying that the people of our state are free to live in accordance with their sincerely-held religious beliefs without fear of reprisal.”
