First chamber recommendation below:
This bill would affirm the principle of limited government and the principle of individual liberty. The proper role of government is to guard against infringing on religious freedom. In Houston, the city subpenaed religious leaders who spoke against social policies being considered by the city, which violates the religious civil liberties guaranteed under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. This legislation would bolster liberty by prohibiting units of government within Texas from infringing on First Amendment rights. We support SB 2048 for these reasons.
