Texas Voters Approve Measure To Ban Limits On Religious Services

In reaction to limits imposed on religious gatherings during the COVID pandemic, Texas voters yesterday approved Proposition 3, a state constitutional amendment which provides:

This state or a political subdivision of this state may not enact, adopt, or issue a statute, order, proclamation, decision, or rule that prohibits or limits religious services, including religious services conducted in churches, congregations, and places of worship, in this state by a religious organization established to support and serve the propagation of a sincerely held religious belief.

The vote was 62.42% in favor, 37.58% opposed. More details at Ballotpedia.
