Anti-LGBT RFRA Bill dies in West Virginia
Another RFRA bill dies. This time in West Virginia.
Lawmakers tried to push this Religious Freedom Restoration Act bill (HB 4012) through their state Senate. They used the same old message about religious freedom and whatnot, but it all failed. Senate voted 27-7, killing the bill like Michael Myers kills teens.
While this is a victory, it's still a small one. You can still be fired for being LGBT there. So, West Virginians still have some work to do.
