(Worthy News) – If a grocery store is an “essential” exempt from stay-at-home orders during an emergency, then religious services also warrant that designation, say sponsors of a pre-filed 2022 bill.

State Sen. Jason Brodeur (R-Sanford) filed Bill 254 on Sept. 17. It stipulates that “emergency orders may not expressly prohibit religious institutions from regular religious services or activities.”

On Thursday, state Rep. Nick DiCeglie (R-Indian Rocks Beach) filed a House companion, House Bill 215, which reiterates that an emergency lockdown or shutdown order must apply equally across businesses and religious institutions. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
